YELLE - L'ere Du Verseau (PRE-ORDER)
gatefold LP + MP3 download
Though not reinventing the wheel, L’Ère du Verseau, which translates to Age of Aquarius, shows the mechanism running smoothly. At its heart, it provides exactly what you want of Yelle: sunny electro, sometimes with a vague menace behind it, fit for synth-pop night at the local gay bar (“Émancipense”, “Karaté”) or a stroll (“Vue d’en Face”, “Un Million”). Having been at it for a decade and a half, they have a formula they can stick with to yield satisfying pop music each time.
