Somewhere between Nancy Sinatra and April March is Mattiel’s Satis Factory, an album that ranges from 1960s Americana to French yé-yé pop. High snare, slightly distorted guitar, and vintage production provide a familiar, rock ‘n’ roll sound, while Mattiel’s vibrato-filled voice offers something new. The second track, “Rescue You,” is the perfect mixture of twist-worthy rhythm and feminist sentiment (“I know you got a thing for people who feel guilty/But don’t you forget it wasn’t God who built me”). The strong rockin’ beat lessens throughout the album, but the swinging pop rides until the end. (3/5)
