Casandra Jenkins – “Hard Drive”

How cool is it to release a spoken word single? That is what Cassandra Jenkins, a New York-based singer-songwriter has done. “Hard Drive” is the second single from her latest LP, “An Overview on Phenomenal Nature.” It features Jenkins talking in a quintessentially American female voice, while her band settles into a sax-fueled pop groove. The stories she weaves are mesmerizing, as is her delivery. With lyrics like “her gemstone eyes caught my gaze”, she drops the listener into a heady poetic mix. It is difficult to describe the feeling the song elicits, listening to Jenkins enunciate every syllable with languid precision, but the overall effect is that when you reach the end of the song, you want to hear it all over again.
