Kissey Asplund - Fuss-N-Fight EP (R2)
Badu may have a new album out, but Kissey is ready to steal her crown and snatch the red carpet from beneath her feet, in her bid to become the neo soul queen. Admittedly, some of the production on this EP may be a little off-kilter for mainstream ears, but this girl is incredibly talented and gets better with each release. Check the gorgeous Hit Me With The Medication, where Kissey skips over jazzied grooves, or the stumbling Entrapped, an ode to being imprisoned by desire.
