I’m ashamed to say this but I totally slept on Kelly Lee Owens’ debut album from last year. Gave it a quick spin when it came out and thought nothing of it really. That was until she announced that she was playing a headline show in London @ Village Underground, so I thought I’d give it another spin to see if she’s worth my time seeing her live and, fuck me, this album is amazing. For the last month it’s been on permanent rotation. How did this pass me by?!
The ‘Lucid’, ‘Evolution’, ‘Bird’, ‘Throwing Lines’ sequence is just perfect, but there are no duff tracks on the album. The whole album is just bangin’! Considering it’s her debut album, it’s so mature. It’s like she’s been making music for 20 years.
What’s your recent album (re)discovery having initially slept on it?
