France - Full Moon 133 - 07/30/07
The female/male duo Pravda echo Cansei d ser sexy and Miss Kittin on this album. It's a bit electro-clash, a bit rock and all shouty. "Tu es a L'ouest" is catchy as hell, the singer yelping confidently to a punchy beat. "What Did You Expect?" is rockier and still as easy to hum along to. Pravda are proving as good at creating instant anthems as Css are.
"Soyuz" sounds very old school synth and is as fun as can be. Pravda fittingly cover Miss Kittin's foul-mouthed "Frank Sinatra" and that adds to the fun. Nothing new here, but plenty of nice songs anyway.
