Get ready to hear some serious chops, because these guys can flat out play. You'll swear you've heard the song before, but you'll also notice that this version is better. But we promise, Kim Vi really wrote this song, a simple tune about a beautiful woman. The band is an all star lineup of Michigan's best young musical prodigies. Judson Branam IV lays down absolutely flawless, glimmering drums. Olin Clark tugs at your soul with each and every note he plays. And we can't even think of a way to describe Louie Leager, because frankly nobody does it quite like St. Louis Slim.
As for Kim, there ain't another multi-talented songwriter around with his combination of impeccable playing ability, structural clarity, showmanship, and (most importantly) soul.
The "Kali, Are You Listening" single is just a taste of whats to come from the state-side Michigander's, as Vi is set to release a full length solo album in May, with an EP from him fronting the Siblings coming in the fall.
