We've been looking for an excuse to pass along something from York, England's Kymberley Kennedy ever since she put out last year's charismatic and red-herringly simple, 21st-Century-Sade ear-turner "Blackout" and a tear-off-the-curtains take on Portishead's "Glory Box".
But now that she's piled up a fair amount of material and even a recent mix-tape — one with enough Big Beat peaks to charm the grump off the wet weather — there's no reason not to now.
