Kimbra - Live SXSW Video/Samaritan/Settle Down BestFit/Imogen Heap Just For Now

3/28/12 12:11AM

here's couple of other videos

new song "Samaritan" live (whoever was filming certainly may have had extra interest when showing her/the performance, lol)

A layered via technology version of "Settle Down"

which kind of reminds me of this alternate multi-layered live version of "Just For Now" from Imogen Heap, who frankly, is 1 name I hardly see Kimbra get compared to, which is surprising.

This is about a week old (I know), but still well worth checking out.. She doesn't exactly go after all the falsettos live, but some of that is the way some of the songs are arranged. Her band, namely her drummer, are terrific.

A couple of other things about Kimbra.

Her 22nd birthday was yesterday. She mentioned on twitter

"Just bought The Colour Spectrum by The Dear Hunter off iTunes. Pumped to get into this...@CaseyCrescenzo"

"@CaseyCrescenzo Are you guys on tour soon? We're here all month! Hope to cross paths x"

She's also mentioned being a fan of Mew, among others. What if a tour of her with The Dear Hunter, Mew or The Mars Volta ever happened?..or a collaboration for something in the studio? oh my. (she also is a fan of The Dillinger Escape Plan as well as a lot of other music, but for my and other tastes, TDH, Mew and the Volta stand out).

Also her headlining set last night in NYC was the following, including 3 new songs (1 being Come Into My Head)

Cameo Lover
Good Intent
Two Way Street
Street Marigold (new)
Plain Gold Ring
Call Me
Old Flame
Samaritan (new)
Settle Down

Come Into My Head (new)
