Breton Releases Free ‘Blanket Rule’ EP, Readies FatCat Debut

Breton have released a free EP featuring four new tracks and a live show staple (the stuttering breaks and dovetailing strings of “The Well”) that originally appeared on the group’s Sharing Notes record. Originally founded as a film collective, Breton quickly took on a second life as a sample-driven, art-damaged pop group caught somewhere between British bass music (Untold’s always on-point Hemlock imprint released their Counter Balance EP a couple years back), dusty mixtapes and Tom Vek. (The fact that Breton remixed Vek and they’ve toured together makes perfect sense.)

While Breton’s debut album (the FatCat-endorsed Other People’s Problems) won’t drop until April 3rd, we’ve got their Blanket Rule EP below—it crashed their servers this morning—right alongside some early 2012 tour dates, more streaming music and a killer video…
