Feu Therese - Ca Va Cogner
Ok, I know I ought to apologize, being American and about to praise a French record, but Ca Va Cogner is one great slab of pop! I swear I’ll watch WWE every night next week to atone. Actually, the first tune, "A Nos Amours," kicks off like some kind of ABBA or Eurovision drivel, so I don’t blame you for turning your back. But damn, if "Les Deserts des Azurs" and "Les Enfants" are not smoky goodness, electronica with just the perfect touch of twangy atmospheric guitar to create a kind of fey-eurotrash-meets-Sonic Youth bite.
Feu Therese's overall set is like some lost 80's release, with the same kind of humor and teeth of the best dance bands of that era. It will sound great on the dance floor, and in your car. Keep the windows rolled up; you’re still the man.
