    There is a reason I recommend so many female artist, it's because they bring a feeling to music which is of a color that male artists seldom (if not ever) attain. In the case of Yelle and "Pop-Up" the pairing of GrandMarnier's contemporary dance production and Yelle's voice is spectacular, I'm not able to understand a word she sings (and I have to admit it's liberating not to have to enter the music through the meaning of words), and yet the sound, beat and texture of their collaboration is instantly addictive. Here's what happened to me, one moment a song from "Pop-Up" was playing in the record sore I was in, the next moment I was buying it, one moment I was driving with "Pop-Up" playing at normal volume, the next moment I had turned the volume up to the MAX!!! What's more is here in this age of bespoke playlists where one can download just the one good song off any album, I feel "Pop-Up" is a really good album as a whole, it's well balanced between it's many moods. For me Yelle is the missing link between Françoise Cactus of STEREO TOTAL and MIA. I do wish I did know what Yelle is singing about just in case she is the French version Kathleen Hanna or Le Tigre.
