Reveille - Broken Machines - Cover

Broken Machines

(2013, Clapping Music) France.

Second album by Reveille, I’ve been waiting for its release ! I think Reveille found its identity from that album, less in François Virot’s other musical projects vein.

Guillaume Ballandras join them on “Broken Machines” as a bassist.

There is four track from the 2011’s ep on that album with a much better sound, and a different production.

The album starts with Modern Pain and his great melodies. I think that song is cinematic.

We Came Alive‘s finale and chorus is absolutely amazing.

I love a lot Long Distance Runner with  Lisa’s vocals, well-done.

My favorite song there is Swallow Everything, the bass line is a killer, the singing rocks, and the ambiences on the guitar are great.

The part at 2:18 in Horses That Never Lose is beautiful.

Here is a music video for Revenge : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVxDt0NmwBM

The artwork is amazing and it’s stunning to realize that is a painting and not a photo !

A terrific album.




1. Swallow Everything
2. We Came Alive
3. Horses That Never Lose
4. Long Distance Runner
5. Modern Pain

Reveille Ep

(2011, D.I.Y.) France.

I bought that Ep when they played live at la Flèche d’or, Paris, the 12nd of March 2011.

You’ll find 4 of these songs in their second album.

The hypnotic rhythmic pattern in Horizon and the vocals work pretty well.

I love a lot Track 5 with just Lisa’s vocals and some guitars, bravo !

The weird ambience in Track 6 is cool.

The silk-screen print is a success.

That Ep was such a teaser for their second album !

Time And Death

(2010, Clapping Music) France.

Reveille is a french rock band with François Virot and Lisa Duroux.

If I’m correct they chose that band name in honor of Deerhoof’s album.

I bought that LP on Clapping Music’s website, it looks great.

My favorite song on that album is Mirrors : the bassline is terrific, and I love how the different instruments arrive, the harmonies, the guitar solo and that fast-tempo drum : Genius !

I like Time And Death too with Lisa singing (Great harmonies between the vocals and the guitar).

The overdubbed vocals in Little Violences is a success.

Commercial Drugs kind of sound like a Nirvana’s song.

I’m Yours sounds like a Clara Clara’s song (another project by François Virot).

Some good songs !




1. Mirrors
2. Little Violences
