funky french disco house

You wouldn’t expect a french house song to start off with wailing electric guitars and a strong vocalist. And you wouldn’t expect a raspy synth line to kick the track into high gear. And you definitely wouldn’t expect this from France’s most well-known house group, behind Daft Punk. On their second album, Au Reve, Cassius took a departure from the standard house sound of synths and 1,3 bass – here, we’ve got guitars, melodies, and a song construction closely approaching that of a pop song.
An incredibly catchy driving track, despite the eerily odd combination of the song title and lyrics…

    What if my judgement is bad? What if I regularly expect things that shouldn’t be? Couldn’t I then, in a round about way, expect said wailing guitars, strong vocalist, and raspy synth? Eh? What do you think about that crappy syllogism?
