Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Kimya Dawson

Image Hosted by

Hopefully you had a chance to see Kimya Dawson at the Midtown Dickens cd Release party on May 12th. My wife's graduation from Duke and family and friends being in town prevented me from going to the event, but hey how often do you get a chance to see your wife graduate from Duke and how often now a days can you actually spend Mother's Day with your mom, so the trade off was fair.

Honestly I wasn't familiar with Kimya Dawson. I mean I knew she was in Moldy Peaches and I knew of her solo endeavors, but I never listen to them and that was by far my first mistake. Have you heard Kimya Dawson? Simply amazing!

I downloaded two albums, one entitled Knock-Knock Who?, and the other, My Cute Fiend Sweet Princess, and I downloaded them with no questions asked. I came away with two releases that have not only been on constant rotation here for the past few weeks, but are essential to my continued fascination with female "folk" singers.

The songs in these collections are raw stripped down acoustic numbers that lay bare boned on the cold cement floor of an abandoned cinder block home with tattered Strawberry Shortcake wallpaper. Plain and simple, her music is pure lo-fi, pop cultured laden, child-like anti-folk. And we like it!

Below are two tracks (one from 2004's My Cute Fiend Sweet Princess and two from 2006's Remember That I Love You) to sample and links to acquire. Enjoy.

.: Underground
