Inbox: Kap Bambino

This week Inbox enters the realm of wild French electro-grunge duo Kap Bambino. The gypsy that is leading lady Caroline Martial woos us with Guns N' Roses, eats spiders (supposedly), rages for the benefit of church-going families, knocks back soup, and loses her mind on stage. Kap Bambino's Blacklist is out now on Because Music.
