Premiers Symptomes

An expanded U.S. edition of Premiers Symptomes, the French electro-duo’s debut EP, collects the sumptuous instrumental singles that first seduced the Eurotrash set. ”Modular Mix” and ”Casanova 70” mix synth schmaltz, cool jazz brass, come-hither strings, and conga grooves into fairly irresistible protoplasmic soul. Two newer tracks, ”Californie” and ”Brakes On,” are amusing retro-funk, but they mess with the down-tempo perfection of the original EP. Chill, boys.
