In an effort to
start up this fresh, new year with a bit of love, Iím gonna
kick off with Kisses for ya. This LA-based group is
comprised of Zinzi Edmunson and Jesse Kivel, a guy whose
name might strike you as familiar if you know of his other
band, Princeton. This project, however, probably hits closer
to Kivelís heart as this duo is rooted in luuurve. Together
with his girlfriend - or as they prefer to call each other,
"over" - the two formulate a lush, breezy sound as Kisses.
Now the type of people that willingly call themselves
"lovers" never really sit well with me, but this duo can
call themselves whatever the hell they want if they keep
churning stuff like this out.
