First Impressions: Res Gives Us A Morsel From 'A Box Of Chocolates'

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Just the other day I was tuning into Res' massively underrated 2001 debut, How I Do ("Golden Boys" is my everything on that record), and was wondering if she was going to grace us with another mixtape/long-lost album like she did when she unleashed the hound that was Black.Girls.Rock! in '09. An album that was divine from all sides and didn't deserve to be shelved.

Well, it's like I psychically in-tune with my listening patterns, as Res is indeed releasing another mixtape (A Box of Chocolates it is to be called) and she's even giving us a sample of that in the form of song, "Comfort of a Stranger". It's less than 3 minutes long, but you get a sweet and melodic head bobber with lots of "ba da ba da da's" and a delicately streamlined synth in the background. Consider the 'Like' button pushed on this one.

I wanted to also mention that Res has some other loose tracks rumbling around as she's covered a cornucopia of vintage hits recently such as: Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen", Three Dog Night's "One", Berlin's "The Metro", and Donna Summer's "On The Radio" (my favorite rendition of the bunch). Plus, a whole mess of tunes reside all over her SoundCloud page and some on her official web spot. My little tidbit is just for those who want more Res in their life, because she is another artist who consistently puts out small little music gifts every once in awhile and it's usually always a treat. To not gab any further, explore the goods over at SoundCloud, take a listen to "Comfort of a Stranger", and get anxious for the impending mixtape. It surely sounds like it's going to be worth the wait...
