Audio Vision: Nneka Is Acoustically Yours

Monday, September 27, 2010

It's Monday, and you know what that means. It means you're working for the weekend Loverboy style.  You're also grouchy, tired, and everybody, especially that one little Pesky McPest who just won't quit, is getting on your last need some music therapy. Here's where Nneka comes in. In order to ease into your work week, an acoustic session from one of my new favorite artists is what you need. A couple of weeks ago, Nneka took a pit stop into Seattle radio station, KEXP, and gave a live session of selections from her fantastic, Concrete Jungle, as well as two new numbers, "Lost Souls" and "Valley". It's real pensive, intimate, and beautiful stuff. "Heartbeat" and "Suffri" were two of my favorite slices from Concrete Jungle, and it's great to hear them toned down and sounding more like lullabies than Afrobeat thrusts. So chill out for a spell, and sneak a peek after the cut for the performances to relax the mind. You'll thank me later.
