Spleen In My Heart

(Spleen by Pirlouiiit)

A new and promising name in French music: Spleen. Strange name? It comes from the French word which means a state of pensive sadness (popularized by the poet Charles Baudelaire), not from the organ.

His music is a fantastic blend, with pieces of Funk, human beatboxing, rock, pop and chanson. His LP Comme Un Enfant (Like A Child) has been released last month. He has already seduced the hypest artists: Coco Rosie, Devendra Banhart, Antony & the Johnsons, Tv on the Radio, Yael Naïm, Kezia Johnes...Who's next?
