Sound it Out # 62: Sabina – "Toujours" (free MP3)
You may know Sabina's voice from her former band Brazilian Girls, though this German-Italian artist is apparently not Brazilian at all. Sabina delivers fanciful stories of talking animals and anthropomorphized objects in a sultry and matter-of-fact tone, while the music spans styles and often defies description. There's a tone of batshit-crazy genius suffusing it all, making her debut album Toujours a whole lot of fun. It's out on February 18. Check out the title track below.
