Background/Info: Forrest LeMaire aka Mr. Kitty is a kind of electro-pop phenomenon who already has released multiple productions in a rather short lapse of time. The latest opus of the artist from Austin (Texas,USA) was released earlier this year and features 15 songs.
Content: If you’re already familiar with the electro-pop sensuality of Mr. Kitty you really won’t be surprised. The songs are once again reveal this wafting synth-pop sensibility and sensuality. It all sounds quite simple, evasive and danceable.
The songs have been accomplished with cool melody lines and some vintage elements. A few songs are a little less hard and even a bit exploring a kind of electro-punk/rock fields.
+ + + : Mr. Kitty has this particularity to have created a very own electro-pop-DNA. Once you’ve heard this artist you’ll always recognize the simple, but efficient sound formula joined by the unique timbre of voice. It’s somewhat androgenic-like, injecting a touch of mystery and joined by some backings (guest) singers on a few cuts.
It’s not that usual to get an album featuring 15 new cuts and without any single remix. This album will definitely please all the fans of Mr. Kitty.
– – – : The main strength of this artist maybe becomes his weakest point as well. There’s no real innovation compared to previous releases and that’s a pity. Don’t get me wrong, this is a real cool work I can only, but encourage you to purchase, but I’m missing a real ‘hit’ here!
Conclusion: Mr. Kitty remains a great experience in electro-pop music although this new work sounds a bit like he turned on the automatic pilot. There’s no real innovation, but do we really need something different from Mr. Kitty?!!
Best songs: “Crisis point”, “Malformed”, “Habits feat. Pastel Ghost”, “Lamentation”.
