reonda is a brooklyn based (and born and bred) indie folk songstress. her latest album, 'lightness of being', is available on limited edition cassette from drink more records.
reonda's songs have a melancholy patience to them that is encouraged by her sweetly deadpan vocal delivery and delicate guitar playing. the few production touches are gently atmospheric; droning organs, pieces of electric guitar and bits of percussion here and there. this music is ostensibly sad in terms of its vibes but i experience an underlying joy listening to it. i have to recommend giving this one a whirl.
get it here, cassette or digital.
