Blog-friendly electro is (deservedly) an easy target these days, but it sure is hard to hate on the folks at Kitsuné. Although the Parisian tastemakers continue to trot out a steady stream of artists mining electro, disco, and all the other en vogue sounds du jour, the label proves that it is possible to exude style and substance at the same time. Don’t miss the Nintendo fetish of bands like Heartsrevolution and You Love Her Coz She’s Dead or the raved-up bangers of A-Trak and Etienne de Crecy; Lo-Fi-Fnk’s midtempo dance pop and We Have Band’s post-punky electro also stand out. This compilation delivers actual songs with actual replay value—those looking for tossed-off remixes of ironic ’80s cuts need not apply.
