Des’ree.  Jill Scott.  Gladys Knight. Lauryn Hill. It’s been too long since I heard some truly excellent R&B.

Chic Gamine belongs with the greats.

Actually, there is no one chick named Chic Gamine. It’s a Winnipeg girl group that’s full of soul and splendid music. (Plus one dude.)

Splendid, yes.

Best album I’ve heard so far this year, hands down. It inspired me to start a best of 2013 tag. That’s how much I love it.
