‘Take A Little Time’ to Watch Kathryn Calder’s New Video
As a member of the New Pornographers and former lead singer of Immaculate Machine, Kathryn Calder deserves to take a victory lap. She sang one of our favorite songs from last year, not to mention co-writing our No. 10 album of 2014, and her new, self-titled solo album promises lots of lovely synth-driven power-pop.
