This week’s Free Tuesday is “Rushmore” by the quirky, Seattle-based electro-pop singer-rapper Katie Kate. (control-click the post title for the mp3 file)
“Katie Kate is a force. A dark horse with an extensive classical background, she channels her quirky, emotive lyrics through the lenses of hip hop, new wave, black metal and top 40 while never fully belonging to any genre. Entirely self produced, she utilizes her skills as a multi-instrumentalist, electronic musician and composer to build towering pop castles, inhabited by witches and powered by electromagnetic buffalos. Her skills as a rapper are shocking, as a singer impressive, and as a producer unprecedented. Catchy, mesmerizing, dark yet playful, Katie Kate stands alone on the frontier of future pop.” (From her Facebook page - www.facebook.com/katiekatemusic)
