I am completely enamoured by this ladies voice and music. Alternating between spoken word, Rap and traditional singing with genuinely interesting lyrics and beats generally provided by a live band.

This is no angry young girl MTV rap wanting to draw attention to itself. Instead it crosses genres lyrically and musically. Above all she seems genuinely talented. The album A Badly Broken Code is well worth checking out if you like a broad sound to your Hip Hop.

She's pretty cool, especially when under Doomtree. She just doesn't hold my attention for some reason.

Her music is quite smooth at times and if that isn't your thing generally then I can see what you mean. She has decent flow though I have to say.

I'm loving the first song.
She has a perfect balance of singing and spoken word.

I definitely want to keep listening.

Liking both these songs alot...maybe the second one more, but that could be because the quality of the sound on the first one wasn't as good. Both awesome though, something different for sure, at least for me. I'll definitely be checking that album out.

A Badly Broken Code pretty much remains the only hip hop album of 2010 that I've liked so far.

I prefer her work on doom trees self titled over her solo work but she is pretty great regardless

I love A Badly Broken Code, like Loathsome Pete said, it's my favorite hip hop album of 2010. I love her style and her lyrics, heck I love the whole Doomtree collective.
