Inner Birthday Song

This week we're featuring Kelly Lee Owens brand new Inner Song, which I've been playing all week long. Hers is music whose influences and inspirations seem to resonate with me especially clearly, so the set-list tonight stradles a lot of other electronic and dance legends, and synth-laden rock too.

It's also's 7th birthday today. Happy birthday, us.
