By now, I’d assume most of you have heard “Somebody That I Used To Know” (see below) by Gotye and Kimbra – a minimalist, elegant, and haunting song with a gut-wrenching yet exquisitely simple tale about a breakup – likely relatable to most. The song put Kimbra on the map, and I’ve been checking out more of her music lately. Came across her cover of Nina Simone’s “Plain Gold Ring”. The intense and deeply personal vocals immediately reminded me of Bjork.
