Track of the Day: 'Matches To Paper Dolls' by Dessa
If you've not heard Dessa before then you're in for a treat. A member of the Minneapolis-based Doomtree crew, who I first caught at the Gayngs showcase at SXSW a couple of years ago, she's not your average entertainer. With rapping talents that match her soulful singing and insightful lyrics, she could really be a force to be reckoned with when her new album comes out later this year.
In the meantime you can grab this track for free, which was recorded at the sessions for her last album 'Castor, The Twin' and which lays down a good marker for the quality of her forthcoming work. If you're a fan of THEESatisfaction or just quality, independent-minded hip-hop then you should give this a listen.
