It’s been a busy week, but didn’t want to let this smooth jam slip by. The newly signed, genre defying Kadhja Bonet has announced the release of her debut The Visitor. On the album, Kadhja – pronounced “kod-ya” – invites us into a world not wholly our own, where past and future meet in a parallel, yet far lovelier, present. Not quite comparing, but I get the same good vibes from Kadhja that I do when I spin some Jefferson Airplane or Sade. You will be transported to another universe.
In anticipation of the release, Gorilla vs. Bear has shared the first track “Honeycomb”. Now available for streaming and free download, the song drifts listeners into a timeless, unplaceable realm of Kadhja’s own making. Fat Possum and Fresh Selects, two respected labels from different genres, have joined forces to bring us this transcendent debut – available in full on October 21. Current mood; this, this, this.
