Not too shabby, even if she's a little too impressed with her own cuteness at every level. Before Bobby McFerrin managed to come into big hits using this kind of sequencing, I'd seen Urzsula Dudziak doing it live in
1987, and certainly Reggie Watts is making a career of this kind of thing (among some other singers) now.

Thanks...these WNYC and WAMU videos are pretty solid things to have about, no?

Around 5:30p tomorrow a quirky set of music videos with a Purpose will be posted on my blog...I suspect you'll be amused, at least...

I did not WANT to like Kimbra, but this song turned me around. Good stuff.

Too quirky for me, thanks. I'll stick with The Drifters...

Reggie Watts is also really great at creating music with sequencing-- with very different results than Kimbra, of course. Ha.

Will look him up.

Here's that Dudziak I mentioned:

Watts's results not always that different from Kimbra's. Watts also the Paul Shaffer-like musician/sidekick on the returning IFC tv series COMEDY BANG BANG.
