Mixing dance-floor verve with meaningful songwriting is a risky proposition, but this Paris electronic-pop quartet strike the perfect balance on their fourth studio album. On songs like "1901," sharp observations about love mingle with piercing guitar, while "Lasso"—with its Cure-on-Ecstasy energy—provides a buzz that'll last long after the final track's done.
