SEND YOUR YOUTH | Basket of Figs
UNIQUE VOICE: One of my favorite musicians, Basket of Figs, has purposefully remained a bit of an enigma. Something completely understandable and refreshing in a day-and-age where it seems no one wants anonymity. But I guess that’s how some folks are who have true talent. Real talent. Talent that overwhelms. Here is Basket of Figs, featured in her first video for the soulful track, “Send Your Youth.” Oh, and don’t say she sounds just like Janis Joplin — because, well — just don’t. Whatever you do, buy as much of her music as you can. Try Yer Bird Records, Aviary. — David D. Robbins Jr.
