About a thousand years (four months?) ago, the delightful Aaron Gowman of the internet’s Twitter slung me a link to Kiran Leonard’s bandcamp. His album is extraordinary. And I promise I am not exaggerating when I say there are shades of Sufjan and Danielson. As in: it sounds like all the best, nuttiest - and most ragged - people in music.
It is of course very wrong to point out how young someone is, but when you are an old lady like I and someone is this good at SEVENTEEN, it’s hard not to. Kiran Leonard is SEVENTEEN, and if someone doesn’t chuck a shit-tonne of money at him soon I swear I will hit a CHILD.
