The queen piece on the chess board scores another one. My lady passed this along to me this evening and I couldn’t help but post it under the She Likes section of music she puts me on to. It’s hard to place this into a genre, but the music is dope and the video is captivating, which is something I miss about videos in recent years. If you’re looking for something different, check it out.
She is into this show called Revenge, where we both heard this song for the first time, placed beautifully along with the footage of what was going on in the show at the time. I always thought it was dope how people can fit a song exactly with what is going on in a TV show or film, to the point you couldn’t imagine the scene playing out without that music. The video below is fan-made and weird, but the song is crazy to me. Amazingly pure voice, haunting in this particular song.
Another artist my better half had to force on me but I couldn’t front on it, Lianne La Havas is crazy talented.
Occasionally, my better half puts me on to dope music that I probably wouldn’t have stumbled across on my own, so I decided to start a new category called “She Likes” for just such an occasion. This is just one of a few dope songs by Kimbra, a singer from New Zealand with an incredible grasp of soul and blues. Get into this performance of “Wandering Limbs” with Sam Lawrence on the additional vocals.
