Listen to Pell Feat. Dave Sitek, “Cafe Du Monde”
New Orleans native Pell is an anomaly on the Big Easy rap scene. While last year's release Floating While Dreaming made some noise, the young spitta is prepared to make a name for himself when he puts out his debut LP LIMBO. Today, we get the single from the project "Cafe Du Monde" featuring Dave Sitek. The hard-hitting track is ear-catching sonically, with Pell matching the track's intensity with his melodic bars.
"The music itself has such a strong, almost dark edge to it," Pell said, describing "Cafe Du Monde" to The FADER. "I tried to match it with a real story with some urgency, something that could feel gripping against an open track. I wanted it to be something that's complex lyrically, yet easy to sink your teeth into."
He added, "If you're not growing, you're either standing still or you're slowly decaying. I want to be constantly growing, as a human, as well as an artist."
Pell's forthcoming album LIMBO is slated to drop on Nov. 6 on Federal Prism records.
