Kimbra and The Stepkids

$17.50-20

Kimbra is best known for her counterpoint vocal in "Somebody That I Used to Know"—I'm sorry for bringing it up, just when you got it out of your head for the first time in months—but it's not a stretch to think that Kimbra's star will soon outshine Gotye's. The New Zealand-born singer has a fine album of adventurous pop, Vows, plus a remarkable stage presence and that prodigious voice. Meanwhile, the Stepkids make sticky vintage soul that's uncannily good; last year's self-titled debut is nothing short of a 21st-century soul masterpiece, and the Connecticut trio's formidable musicianship is bound to send future efforts off into many ambitious directions.
