It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any music other than Billy Bragg – time to change that!
Internet friend and commenter extraordinaire dmf posted a song by Nigerian-German singer Nneka in Tuesday’s Open Thread, which reminded me of the Nneka song he posted nearly two years ago (can you believe it’s been two years, dmf? I can’t!), and she is just so wonderful, that I just have to post them both right here on the front page.
First, the song that I think is her best-known: “Heartbeat,” then the one dmf dropped off the other day: “Do you love me now?” She makes me think of Neneh and Eagle Eye Cherry, a little bit. Delightful.
