    The EP that she released with the Mountain Goats was fantastic.  I love this song

    Oh hey, I know her.

    Great song. Really nice rhythm to it.

    Barefoot walking always makes me cringe.

    I’m pretty sure it hearkens back to stepping on a jellyfish, cutting my foot on a barnacle, and stepping on an open button pin in a span of weeks when I was a little kid.  I don’t go barefoot even inside my home, unless I’m sitting with my feet up.  It’s just an anxiety I suppose.

    Her music is so emotionally charged, it really hits the right spot for me. You know when you listen to an artist and say to yourself, this is exactly what I needed in my life. That’s Kaki King for me. I’m so glad she exists.

    I was sure she’d trash the Yamaha. 
    Wrong again.
