6 out of 10

So, Gorky's with a French singer, then. Your appreciation of Lucky Elephant may stand or fall on how you take to vocalist 'Manu' Labescat and his half-spoken, half-droning nasality. Nowt wrong wi' tune, though - a cheekily shimmering piece of Summery bounce with more than a little North Africa about it. The eponymous second half of the double-A is a quirky instrumental which wouldn't sound out of place on the soundtrack to an episode of Charlie and Lola. Happy happy, joy joy.

Lilting instrumental takes you floating away on a summer breeze. The vocals take a bit of getting used to, but they keep these happy tunes from become cliched and too kooky. Buy it now, you won't regret it!
