Boomkat Product Review:
Petit Mal is French for "small shopping centre". That's a fact. Here are some more: this record is the handiwork of duo Ben Seymour and Melanie Gilligan, an interesting pair whose music is at once vehemently retro - tied into the synth-pop dystopias of the early '80s - yet also very current, lacking the sort of knowingness and kitsch that tends to sink records that opt for this sort of aesthetic. Indeed, some of the more interesting productions here are pretty avant-garde by any era's standards: the noisy blips of 'Crisis II' bring to mind Broadcast circa Tender Buttons, ranting about all things credit crunch (which I suppose compounds the band's sound as something that's very current indeed). A more direct brand of pop results come about from 'Possessed' and the slow, bitcrushed disco of 'Mount Dimension', suggesting that here's a band that might reasonably share shelf-space with US electro-hipsters like Telepathe. Good stuff.
