Various Artists Kitsuné X
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Kitsuné
Cluttered with Darwinian references, Galapagos Islands hidden down the inside CD spine, and a finch on the cover, are we meant to read this as the natural selection of electroclash, now safely commodified into the mainstream as "electropop"? Perhaps, as many of the artists represented here owe much to the short-lived fashion-music movement of yore. Joakim, Volga Select, Simian Mobile Disco, Hot Chip, and Dieter Schmidt transcend historical moments with slickly produced ingenuity, but others belong in the time capsule fluorescently labeled 2000.
