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.

Song Roulette

1) “You Painted Yourself In” • Jolie Holland • The Living and The Dead

“This album was given to me by a friend who thought I’d enjoy it. Wow! Was he sure correct! There’s not one single song that I skip!”

Song Roulette

2) “Rosewater” • Waycross • Waycross

“A now defunct band—R.I.P.—a friend o’ mine who lived in Albuquerque for a summer years ago fronted this band. The haunting lyrics and vocals pull me in every time.”

Song Roulette

3) “Lo-Fi Tennessee Mountain Angel” • Whiskeytown • Faithless Street

“What can I say … Whiskeytown. (Insert heart symbol.)”

Song Roulette

4) “Take It Easy Mama” • Ryan Bingham • Mescalito

“Ryan Bingham is perhaps my favorite songwriter right now. I discovered him on Austin City Limits late one night. I’ve learned nearly all of his songs!”

Song Roulette

5) “Lazy Eye” • Silversun Pickups • Carnavas

Perhaps the BEST SONG EVER WRITTEN! I put this song as the first on my bike riding playlist. I truly believe that this song makes me drive faster.”
