Musiciens Sans Frontieres
Musiciens Sans Frontieres
Alternative - Rock - World - Pop - Experimental
Musiciens Sans Frontiéres is a NYC based alternative rock project, with members originally hailing from the U.S.A., Austria and Columbia. In their latest album, "Spread Some Love" (endorphin records), they fuse alternative rock with world beats and experimental soundscapes, encompassing a spectrum from goth and grunge to world beat, ska and folk-punk.
The songs tackle issues ranging from green energy and banning fracking ("So Many Ways") to marijuana legalization ("Legalize") to the need to protest (Dead Hero, MSF's version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit") to the need to protect ("Affection"). Five songs off their latest album have been receiving airplay on 23 radio stations (commercial, satellite and internet) across the U.S., on Austria's premiere alternative radio station FM4 as well as three radio stations in Germany to date.
