Le dôme

Le dôme

Mashing up nylon guitars with big beats and Franglais rap might not sound that outré in the internet age, but in 1996, Jean Leloup was the French Canadian answer to Beck. His third album houses some of his most inventive genre-splicing experiments: “La chambre” combines acoustic strums with hip-hop percussion, while the funky flows of “Le monde est à pleurer” sound like Chic making DIY rap. His playful touch is still evident, too, best shown by “Edgar,” a cheeky homage to Serge Gainsbourg’s “Cargo Culte.”
