I wish I knew French

Yelle-POP-UP

A while back I was on Hype Machine killing time and came across a remix of Katy Perry’s Hot n Cold. The version featured Yelle, a French pop singer. Needless to say, her addition to the song was much appreciated. Months later, I was online again and found Qui Est Cette Fille (Foul House Remix) and was hooked. It took a while but I manage to snag a copy of Yelle’s cd, Pop-Up. It’s french electro pop and it’s fantastic. I have no idea what she is saying but I guess that doesn’t matter when the beat is SO good. Definitely an awesome pick up. The music scene outside the US has upped the ante; Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, CSS and now Yelle. They all bring something new and different which is what makes them so great.
