Singer/bassist Guylaine Vivarat’s sings in her native French throughout DTCV’s latest full-length album, Confusion Moderne, a decision that lends an extra layer of mystery to a band whose origins and rapid evolution have already been sources of curiosity. 

The chiming guitars and shifting tempos of the album’s 10 songs channel any number of ’80s Post Punk staples, touchstones about which the band is kind of touchy —Vivarat’s partner in crime is singer/guitarist Jim Greer, a Rock critic-turned-novelist who doesn’t suffer fools lightly, and whose onetime membership in Guided by Voices and relatively brief marriage to Kim Deal are often brought up when discussing DTCV, almost always in ways he finds irritating.
