Rhapsody Originals (EP, Exclusive)
by Kaki King
Released: Jul 2008
Label: Velour Music Group
No doubt about it: Kaki King is an extraordinarily gifted guitarist. But, as this exclusive Rhapsody session shows, King has grown so much as a singer-songwriter that it is the entire package that spellbinds. Her impressive technique is now in the service of mysterious indie pop tales that she tells in such a straightforward manner that everything makes perfect sense on an emotional level. As a bonus, Kaki King has a much bigger pop appeal than other atmospheric indie guitar mavericks (such as Durutti Column's Vinnie Reilly).
