Even though the French have a reputation for being passionate and romantic, they can also pull off aloof pretty well too. So it should come as no surprise that YACHT's cover of the 1969 Brigitte Fontaine number "Le Goudron" sounds like the missing link between Krautrock and Kraftwerk. There's a stilted pseudo-rap thing going on that recalls Austrian Falco more than it does Serge Gainsbourg or even Air, but the naive incompetence is half the charm, I guess. You're mostly in this for the beat anyway.
