Kimbra: Smoky Soul

Kimbra_Vows

Can I do a wordless post?  Can I?  Is that even allowed in the blogosphere?  Cause I feel like they’d just take up the much needed space I could be using to show you her music.  Words are wasted trying to peg Kimbra (Johnson) down to a musical style.  Where some bands need a bit of explanation, building an expectation before you hear Kimbra is frivolous.  The Melbourne, Australia via Hamilton, New Zealand 20-year old is a Nina Simone disciple in all the best ways.
