Paris powerhouse La Femme are the French new wave you’ve been waiting for — the spiritual descendents of Stereolab and Stereo Total, who share La Femme’s literacy and daring when it comes to rediscovering and repurposing the best of past decades of inventive, on-the-edge pop. Their newest, Mystère (on the formidable Born Bad label), is a cooler and more cinematic effort than 2013’s wild Psycho Tropical Berlin, like a wide-screen, Technicolor spaghetti Western instead of an oversaturated Danger: Diabolik bang-pow action flick. But like any good director, La Femme make great use of negative space, and Mystère displays a sharp new side of their ’60s/’70s/’80s influences. Now it’s rhythm, repetition and hypnotism — and it’ll win you over before you know it.
