Femme Fatale - From The Abundance Of The Heart, The Mouth Speaks

Femme Fatale is the solo project of Jesse F. Keeler of Death From Above 1979 and MSTRKRFT, all of which I love. Before these groups JFK was involved in a number of 31G-style punk bands, and in many ways Femme Fatale fits this sound also. Stylistically, Femme Fatale is similar to DFA1979 but noisier, heavier, and faster (and with the addition of guitars). Despite their frenetic sound, these songs still retain the dance punk style that characterizes DFA1979 and many other 31G groups underpinned by electronic interludes and samples. This EP is Femme Fatale's third and in my opinion best, although they are all great - apparently there is a fourth recorded long ago which Jesse is sitting on - who knows if it'll ever be released. If you enjoy DFA1979, The Blood Brothers, The Locust, etc. check this EP out.
