I’ve written about Kim Boekbinder and her funky music before And it still makes me smile and dance when it comes on in my car.
So imagine my excitement when she posted that she’s going to tour! And she’s stopping by Los Angeles, which I hate driving to, but I really would love to see her live.
But that might not happen. Because she’s pre-selling her tour.

She’s raised the money to record from preorders and donations. And now the album is for sale!
Boekbinder has broken the album into 4 pieces and is currently offering the album on bandcamp as a pay what you want. You can preview all of the songs in their entirety, so you know before you download how much you want to pay her.

We learn that she’s beautiful, distant, ethereal, and free. She cannot be bound and live. To love her is to accept her and her free spirit.
