(Jigsaw Records, PZL141)
it has been over four years since the last Watoo Watoo album ("Une Si Longue Attente", also on Jigsaw), but the band members have been busy with their own side projects, Photon (Michaël) and Montclair (Pascale). They have reconvened one more time, however, to make one more gorgeous POP! record, entitled "Modern Express". Falling somewhere in between Stereolab, Felt and Broadcast, with a heavy dose of original French pop, the duo have created yet another instant classic filled with jangly guitars, vintage synths and lovely bilingual female vocals, besting their already stellar prior output. Be sure to pick up the cd, which is the only place to get their cover of a translated British hit as a bonus track!
Not limited. All songs written by Watoo Watoo, except track 11 by the Wedding Present. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
