Kitsune always showcase a nice line in electronica, and this second journey through all things embryonic on the Parisien scene is a pleasant if ultimately unremarkable listen. Tasteful and listenable electro pop is the order of the day, with even lines as caustic as “we’re dying in a Holy War” being delivered with the kind of detached insouciance that one would expect from this most hip of labels. It is all eminently well put together, with LESCOPS’ ‘La Foret’ being a particular highlight, but something a little less glacial and clinical wouldn’t go amiss occasionally. Still, if it’s electro pop you’re looking for you could do far worse.
