Yelle, 'Pop-Up' (Caroline)

6
Pop-Up
Critical Mass
Label: Caroline

by Shannon Zimmerman

Francophile electro-pop completists (both of 'em) might roll their eyes with been-there-done- that ennui, but no matter: The rest of us can still thrill to the handclaps-and-Casio panache of Pop-Up, which, in its digital-only version, has been passed around for months like an intercepted mash note. The CD release adds a remix of dance-floor manifesto "A Cause Des Garcons" (a.k.a. "What We Do for Boys") to a whiplash set that includes the heavy-breathing "Je Veux Te Voir" (a reworked version of "Short Dick Cuizi," the MySpace hit on which Yelle critiqued a member of Parisian hip-hop group TTC) and "Amour Du Sol," a throbbing, overamped heartbreaker that, midway through, morphs into a booty-shaking break-dance anthem.
