Kid Sister FINALLY Gets off the Can!

And dat’s some fine
shit, too.


By Blurt Staff


Seems like…. well, not yesterday, more like last year, when
we got advance CDRs in of the new Kid Sister album. We even assigned a review,
and got the review in – it was called Dream
. Then Downtown pushed the release date back… then back again… then the
label finally told us, “We don’t fucking know!”


Now it seems that Kid Sister has overhauled the album and
had set an Oct. 6 release date. Don’t hold us too that, please. But below you
can read what Downtown and the Kid have to say about it. Meanwhile, what are
those advance copies going for on eBay right now, hmmm? We know none of you ethically-minded journalists out there would try to
sell yours, now, would you?




When Kid Sister (aka Melisa Young) turned in her album,
originally titled Dream Date, in September of 2008, she pulled a daring
move and asked Downtown to hold off on releasing it.


“There were a few things about the album that irked
me…the album wasn’t cohesive”, Young told Pitchfork in an interview
earlier this year. Downtown allowed her some time to make the album what she
wanted, and she went back to work with executive producer A-Trak and the rest of the creative
team behind Fool’s Gold. The result is the stunning Ultraviolet
The album is a landmark, merging electronic music and club rap in ways that
have never been done before. The album includes production by some of the most
sought after, cutting edge producers working today (including A-Trak, Rusko, Steve Angello & Sebastian
Ingrosso, Sinden, XXXChange, Brian Kennedy, Herve, Yuksek and DJ Gant-Man)
who all seem to have recognized the talent and star power that also motivated Kanye West to collaborate with her on
2007’s Pro Nails single, helping in part to create the deafening buzz
that surrounds her now. The album is 12 songs deep, with each track being mixed
seamlessly into the next, creating a continuous mix of songs that contain an
innovative approach to their perfectly honed pop sensibilities.  The final
result of Kid Sister’s signature effervescent rapping style with these
innovative producers will cement her debut release as one of the most talked
about this year.
