Canadian Kara Keith

Today I present to you Kara Keith, a singer / songwriter hailing from Calgary, Alberta who put out a self-titled EP, her fourth CD, at the beginning of last month that's just dynamite. She was formerly the front-woman for another Canadian band, Falconhawk, and she's got a voice and style that instantly reminded of Liz Phair's older work (especially the opening track, Gorgeous Gets The Gold, circa Exile in Guyville era) mixed with Au Revoir Simone's newer work. The five tracks on the EP go by way too quickly, but they're good enough to listen to several times through on repeat. Try the second track below and then buy the whole kit-n-caboodle.
