I know…I know…I could work PR for npr, but every week I find something new that I really dig. This week it’s Kimya Dawson’s powerful track, 12/26. I think listening to it is enough explanation. The link will take you to her website where you can listen to the mp3 and the see what else she has to offer.
I had no idea what I was about to encounter on npr, aside from as basic into on asc: “Kimya Dawson is a Seattle singer-songwriter and one of the leading voices in the so-called anti-folk movement. Her music is both sweet and brash, funny and poignant. Her ideas come so quickly, she doesn’t sing them as much as babble them like stream of consciousness.”
So that’s all I’m going to include here. Just experience it.
