NEW MUSIC: Brandee Younger – So Alive ft. Niia (Tensei Remix)

Brandee Younger came to my attention earlier this year via Twitter, thanks to me making fun of harpist who was playing in Williamsburg. Younger defended her instrument, and the woman that goes by the Twitter handle harpista is more than capable of it. Forget your pre-conceived notions, Younger is proving that the harp a force, and her soulful takes on the classical instrument prove it. Take this track “So Alive.” Younger’s harp adds an elegant touch to Niia’s vocals and downtempo offerings by Tensei almost remind me of Esthero. Check it. (via Giant Step)
