The joy of Psapp lies in the duo's combination of electronic and percussive beats, unusual sound effects and sensual vocals, all of which somehow blend together to create strange and elegant music. The disc's oddly pretty sounds and quirky sense of humor — listen to the cover of "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" for further evidence — make the songs highly addictive.

Psapp (the first "P" is silent) consists of Londoners Carim Clasmann and Galia Durant, whose encounter quickly resulted in musical inspiration. Their latest collaboration is this summer's appealing The Only Thing I've Ever Wanted.
