Give This a Shot

Post by Blair N. Cummings »

Since the early 70s, I have heard very few pop music figures who penetrated my self-enshrouded "cloud of unknowing." In the 90s (already solidly middle-aged) I heard and liked Fiona Apple and Liz Phair. A few years ago I found Nneka (yes, two "n"s) who seems to have vanished around five years ago.
More recently, I stumbled across Solange (Sol-Ange, earlier) who makes albums with one foot solidly rooted in her soul/R&B roots and the other here-and-now with a few toes wiggling toward the future. I like all of her recordings but the new one is getting all the buzz, so start here:
