MATHIAS (1997)
320 KBPS

Gribouille, born as Marie-France Gaite in 1941, was a mercurial singer and songwriter who made her mark for a very brief time on the French pop circuit. Diagnosed early in life with a mental health condition, Gribouille spent a time in psychiatric care, but not of her choosing. Upon her release, she moved to Paris, and hooked up Jean Cocteau, leading to cabaret work. In 1966, she released her only single and her only album. Sadly, she died only two years later, after a lethal combination of medication and alcohol. 40 years later, her work remains something of a cult object. Her passionate vocals, her peculiar way to mix pop music and classic chanson still does wonders. A must hear.
