Martial Canterel is the male half of Xeno & Oaklander. Brett has been trying to make sense of their new album today, despairing at the lack of fresh adjectives to describe Cold Wave Electro music. Like X&O, this chappie deploys some wonderful sounding analogue keyboard-ery & galloping archaic drum machinery in his quest for the creation of authentic sounding period pop tunes. There's some cracking, glistening synth melodies firing from within the framework of these somewhat hyperactive glacial nuggets. His rather thin, nonchalant Anglophile vocals sound perfect for such an exciting yet austere pastiche of one of the most revolutionary pop genres ever. The third track doesn't half owe a debt to John Foxx but, hey, ripping off the greats is no crime especially in the world of traditional electropop! What I like most of all is that this just doesn't sound like it's been within 1000 miles of New York. Once again, if you've been pigging out on the Minimal Wave comps or ever enjoyed the old stuff on Trumpett/Enfant Terrible you need this. Truly the finest melodies from Mars!
