Kimo is an Albuquerque-based musician who has been “crankin’ out tunes” for nearly two decades. In addition to drawing a number of honors over the years, she was voted the Alibi’s best singer-songwriter in Best of Burque 2010. Right now, Kimo is working on a new album and booking shows with a new band (shhhh—more on that in due time). To tide you over, here are the five random songs that appeared on her shuffled iTunes.
Silversun Pickups' single "Panic Switch" has been getting a lot of airplay on The Edge.
I've always sort of thought of the band as non-mainstream pop, but clearly that characterization is being eroded. I still like Silversun, but I mentioned my fond feelings to some of my musically educated friends and they berated me for a half-hour. Soooo.... What do you think? Are these guys killer or filler?
