MUSIC NEWS: Kaki King Debuts New Music Video

With what seems like straight out of a David Lynch film, Kaki King is mesmerizing in her new video for "Tunnel," a hypnotic un-released (until now) track recorded during King's 2004 Legs To Make Us Longer sessions.
 
Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn's "Into The Wild", and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.
 
Everybody Glows: B-sides & Rarities, out this week, features a collection of outtakes, demos, covers, live versions and never before heard recordings culled from scratched demo CDs, long forgotten hard drives, and the fuzzier corners of her memory. The collection reveals the evolution of her songwriting while offering a glimpse of a young guitarist doing daring things on her instrument before she grasped the significance of any of it. The album comes with a track-by-track explanation of each song, along with liner notes written by her biggest supporter and fan: her father.

In other news, Kaki is preparing her landmark new show, The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, for 2015, featuring high-concept projection mapping in collaboration with Glowing Pictures.  A recording of The Neck is a Bridge to the Body will also be released in 2015 in conjunction with extensive international touring. A preview of the new show will be presented on the West Coast in December.
