Song(s) of the Day # 1,298 La Feline

I come across things occasionally, sung in languages other than English that have absolutely no profile whatsoever in English-speaking markets but surely deserve to have one. Such appears to be the case with French artist La Feline and her current album, Triomphe, one of the finest records I've heard this year.

It's essentially a modern electronic pop record, mixed up from familiar ingredients, built on synthesised banks of melody, almost whispered vocals, non-aggressive but utterly authoritative in terms of delivery.I find it completely entrancing every time I listen to it.

As I said, it's familiar, anyone who cares for Charlotte Gainsbourg's stuff for example will appreciate exactly where this is coming from. Eleven tracks in all and something intriguing and enticing going on with each and every one. Somehow the French always pull off these poetic, dramatic, dreamlike exercises in style so much better than anyone else! Triomphe indeed.
