For those who grew up getting a kick out of Basia‘s music, there’s good news for you. She is back with a new cd entitled It’s That Girl Again and I must admit that there is glowing maturity (read: little less mainstream) in her new tracks without sacrificing the usual lilt that made her songs popular.
I really waited years and years for her to release a new set of songs. My verdict? She still doesn’t disappoint, unless it’s someone else’s first time to be introduced to her music and judge this body of work as nothing extraordinary. Call me partial but hey, I’ve always associated Basia with a few significant moments in my life so there will always be a special place in my heart (and ears) for her.
The carrier single is the upbeat (with classic Basia groove) “If Not Now Then When” which instantly hooked me up. You will also enjoy her other pieces like “Blame It On The Summer” and “Everybody’s on the Move.”
