I had trouble finding any info online about Dondolo that wasn't written in his native French, so I pasted his bio into that handy little box on freetranslation.com, and this is what they told me:
"Dondolo play a pop cyclothymique, strongly contrasted, passing pop punk yelled brulots to nursery rhymes electro-pop melancholic and playful. Sung just as well in English as in French, its pieces are a mixture (a collision?) of varied influences has incompatible priori, going Buzzcocks to Christophe, while going through Jacno and the Hot Chip. Un true kaleidoscope of pop rock one of these 30 behind years. In unparalleled equilibriste, it succeeds doing this big gap while falling again on its paws, thanks to a science of the pop accroche out norm."
I think all of this is mostly true, especially the part about the paws; but they neglected to mention that Dondolo's song "A Question of Will," from his new record Dondolisme, is irresistable and undeniably fun. "Fluffy Angel" will likely be the track from this record that blows up and gets the obligatory Hot Chip remix, but as far as I'm concerned, this is the jam:
Dondolo A Question of Will
p.s. there's also a video.
Said the Gramophone posted Yeasayer's incredible song "2080." I first heard this song around SXSW-time, and in the time since, it's become one of my favorite songs of the year. StG does a great job explaining its appeal.
