Kit­sune Chic French la­bel Kit­sune has carved out a smart niche spe­cial­is­ing in top-drawer elec­tro­rock sound­clashes. Its Kit­sune Mai­son com­pi­la­tions, in par­tic­u­lar, have pro­vided a re­li­able and ro­bust health check of a scene where bands and electrics hap­pily col­lide. Acts such as The Teenagers, Cazals, The Whip and Crys­tal Cas­tles have all found a room in the la­bel’s mai­son. This time out, though, there’s lit­tle to get ex­cited about, with many of the con­trib­u­tors ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an off day. For some, such as Fish­er­spooner, the con­tin­u­ing dearth of any de­cent ideas causes you to huff and sigh. For Dig­i­tal­ism, for in­stance, the track it­self is sim­ply a bad call. There are few bright sparks here, with only Rex the Dog and Cazals ap­pear­ing ca­pa­ble of tak­ing things for­ward. www.kit­sune.fr Down­load tracks: Rex the Dog, Cir­cu­late; Cazals, To Cut a Long Story Short
