Dessa darling

“If wordsmith-songbird Dessa isn’t the future of hip-hop, she should be.”

-Insight News

 

There aren’t many people for whom the words…

wordsmith…

songbird…    

and hip-hop… 

…will gather together in a single sentence.

Her album A Badly Broken Code is one of my absolute favourites and you can listen to it (or to the more recent Castor, the Twin which is mostly a reworking of the same tracks into a more ‘organic’ form) free on her bandcamp page.  It’ll knock your socks off, so you’ll be glad to know you can purchase the download on bandcamp too.

(Also there, you can get a free download of the 5-track EP False Hopes.  This is from 2005, she was just finding her voice.  It’s ok, but really – pay the ten dollars and get her at her wordsmith-songbird-hip-hop best)
