still life_The holiday break is when I catch up on so much music I missed in the madness of the year. My determination to make the stacks of CDs disappear is only matched by my excitement of finding some music I might have missed otherwise. There was a Kylie Minogue CD (Abbey Road Sessions?) which I quickly dismissed, only to discover another Kylie just underneath – Kylie Auldist. When I saw the label Tru Thoughts, I knew I was in for something good.

This soul-singing Kylie is half-Samoan, but born and bred in the outback of Australia. “Still Life is her 3rd album and is fantastic from start to finish, including a cover of the Black Keys’Howlin’ For You”.

My favorites are “Changes” (there’s also a great extended remix of the track by Lanu) and “Counting On You” (which got airplay from KCRW DJs Raul Campos, Anne Litt, Valida and more)
