Magic Stick Lounge
Detroit, MI

Housse De Racket spilled there french pop noise in the speakers of the Magic Stick Lounge and filled the ears of a crowd that was glued to their aggressive performance and wild guitar riffs that you never hear anything like it anymore until they resurfaced those out of ordinary notes.

The band just finished up a successful year at SXSW and are touring North America through Spring ending with their first ever appearance at Coachella, adding dates with Neon Indian, The Rapture, and The Hives. (Tour dates listed below) For Alesia, Housse de Racket has teamed up with French super-producer, Phillipe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Rapture) to create a collection of eleven electro-pop songs in the vein of the bands’ own wide range of musical influences; from Ennio Morricone to David Bowie. The result is a unique compilation of tracks that embody the sound Housse de Racket has made famous, both through their first album and their live show. Recorded half in French and half in English, Alesia is an evolution of sound; a bold new direction for the bands’ sophomore album.
