The Do


The Do
A Mouthful
Get Down
ADDS 8/4/09

"Allow me to propose the Do for your summer soundtrack shortlist consideration. By the way, it’s “the Do” as in “doe, a deer” — or, indeed, as in one of Homer Simpson’s annoyed grunts — and not as in “doing the do”. A Paris-based duo comprising Dan Levy and Olivia Merilahti, the Do have put together one of those pop albums that seems to obey only one rule: whatever the last track sounded like, you can be sure the next one will be totally different. It begins with Playground Hustle, which is what Missy Elliott and Timbaland must have sounded like at the age of 10 — and from there it just gets better and better. Some of it is a little bit Cardigans, some of it is more PJ Harvey, some of it is knowingly and rather charmingly cheesy — and all of it is fun." - The Sunday Times (UK), 4/5 stars
