Margo, The Catnap (Tsk! Tsk!)
French droup Margo deploys a very French-like electronic pop disc that floats three feet high and is pretty enough as background music but not much else. "Take Me" is the coolest thing here and sounds like it could be placed within some weird Japanese cartoon or video game. But a lot of The Catnap is inconsequential silliness that doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason. It merely is, and I suppose that's OK for some folks, but I like to have a little more meat with my potatoes. Not offensive in any way, but not engaging enough to be remotely enjoyable as anything but a minor distraction, either.
