Ted's Song of the Week - 5/30/06

Out In the Black
Imaad Wasif
Imaad Wasif

Imaad Wasif, a former member The New Folk Implosion, displays real soul in this ballad about a lost love. If you've heard the name before, it's due to his recent involvement with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, in which he joined as a touring guitarist. However, Wasif should not be labeled among the hipster genre that the YYY's have defined. Wasif is a talented folk artist with a flair for versatility.
In a style reminiscient of the late Elliott Smith, Wasif serenades his listeners with a haunting acoustic sound that will leave even the most obstinate fan in a melancholy state of mind.
This is a great track for your latest chill-out mix. "Out In the Black" is available for download here.
