The fun in live looping is all about hearing how a song is made—how a series of bloops and beats and basses get layered into actual music. It's just one person and some foot pedals. And in her video for "Anthem," Kawehi invites us to watch how a song is put together.
Kawehi, who first wowed us with her vocal cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box," has a new album of "songs from a robot girl's perspective." In the video, she appears with her head in a box, a nod to the most rudimentary of robot costumes. As she layers her loops, more and more boxed singing heads appear. It's a fun and wonderfully surreal seven minutes. [Bandcamp]
