Pick of the Day – June 19th: YahZarah – The Ballad of Purple Saint James

Yahzarah – The Ballad of Purple Saint James

More refreshing music.  If you’re familiar with Foreign Exchange, then you know her very well.  This was built to be a continuation on the last FE album, and Nicolay’s City Light 2 – another quality pick-up.  Sounds like maybe the Isley Brothers, late 70’s-early 80’s Michael Jackson, and Gwen Stefani made an album together – with all of their best qualities taken into account.  It’s funky, poppy, soulful, and rock star, all at the same time.  Very much a relationship experience driven album, she pours everything she has into each track going from the resentful to loving to regretful to wistful, sometimes in combinations on the same track, and then with even more emotion than that.  Great album – you can purchase from the Foreign Exchange website. Great video for the single too.
