Back in college when I first heard Yelle, I steeped myself in her music for longer than I care to think about. My love for Yelle’s music is still strong, but I’ve been in a pretty folk/bluegrassy mood so far this summer, thanks in no small part to seeing Lake Street Dive and River Whyless in concert a couple months ago. Well, this morning I was browsing an AskReddit thread about people’s favorite non-English songs, and someone posted “Papaoutai” by Stromae, a Belgian rapper/singer/songwriter. Now it looks like I’m headed for a summer of French pop music.
