Plates Coutures - Matmatah

Whoever claimed French rock was dead (might have been me) had clearly forgotten all about excellent Skip the Use and Shaka Ponk. While neither of those have released anything new in a while - though I belive Shaka Ponk is on the move! - the Briton gentlemen of Matmatah are kindly stepping in, after a decade of absence.

I know none of their previous albums, so can't compare them to this. The low-expectations principle is applicable to the full! 

Possibly partly therefore, I found this to be very fair rock music, of a kind you don't hear much of any more. (At least I don't.) Nothing overly original, but very listenable.
