Klo Pelgag – Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs

As far as albums that I can’t understand the lyrics to go this album is a solid 10. You’d think it would just be downhill from the album’s centerpiece single Umami but it just keeps getting better. Think Yelle 2.0 but like… better?

This was one of those albums for me where I flagged the first few songs, and then proceeded to flag almost every single song. I’ll be honest I haven’t had a chance to translate and glance the lyrics yet, so I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt (yikes French friends pls help).
