obsessed with obi best.
I keep all kinds of lists. Things to do, books to read, music to hear and art to admire. I finally got around to checking out a name on my music list, Obi Best, and I'm so glad I did. I'm just gonna admit the obvious: I mostly love it because her voice resembles my other two favorites, Maura Davis of Denali and Ivana XL.
Lead singer Alex Lilly is best known as backup singer for Inara George in The Bird and the Bee. But dear god...a backup singer? Why? Her voice is AMAZING. She took 10 of her friends to create the band Obi Best and recorded a debut album called Capades. It will be physically released on February 24, 2009 but has been digitally available since August.
Of the six songs I've heard, this one's my fave. Hear more at their myspace.
