As you know, I’ve already written about this artist, Chris Pureka, and now she has a new EP, “Chimera II,” and a stylish new video. I’m smitten. I think Chris is one of the finest young songwriters working today. Check out this track, “Old Photographs.” The LOOK videos are the brain child of Andrea Alseri: one camera, one take, one song. She’s done a bunch of them, and they’re all cool.
Here’s Chris’s performance of “Landlocked,” from her record “How I Learned to See in the Dark” (Sad Rabbit Music, 2010), at KEXP in 2010.
I found this track a month ago on “Live at KEXP: Volume Eight.” These are amazing CDs, collecting together the best of the live in-studio performances. KEXP is a Seattle treasure, old-school radio. Alex Turner, one of the timeless voices in music today.
