The potted biography that came with this French duo's debut seems designed to put off as many people as possible. (John is "all brooding, chiselled cheekbones", Jehn is "a beguiling mix of clumsy energy and incredible beauty", and the two are "very much in love", which is more than enough information, thanks.) However, the record is reassuringly free of goo. Divided into Side John and Side Jehn - the former is heavy on the ramshackle art-rock, the latter on poppier confections with actual choruses - it makes "love" seem like a seedy state of affairs.
