k flay is kristine flaherty from chicago. she sings and raps, but unlike most female mcs/divas she creates her soundscapes from the ground up. female producers aren’t too common in the hiphop world…welcome ms. flay.
her music is electronic. it’s clever. it’s tongue-in-cheek. it’s also really good. her style is a tight mash-up of hiphop and electronics. it’s clearly informed by indie rock, without the cosby sweater and large, dark-rimmed glasses. i’m impressed with her effortless delivery and smart word play.
i came across her write-up in the newest issue of ghettoblaster magazine (yes it’s called that, don’t judge, just go to http://ghettoblastermagazine.com/) and immediately downloaded her 2010 self-titled ep on itunes. it’s a blast.
click and listen to “so fast, so maybe”. she’s got a little bit of flow…
nevermind, watch this instead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ls9mUE57Ccg&feature=fvwrel
