In the grand scheme of things, a new album of covers and more might not be what we all need. However if you look deep, you’ll find that’s exactly what you want. While Okay Kaya could chill after winning a Spellman Award for her last album Watch This Liquid Pour Itself. With a new album The Incompatible coming in October 22nd on Jagjaguwar, her lead single “If I Can Help Somebody” carries so much more than just another song.
The song is short and sweet. The song’s title comes out at the jump. There’s almost no story here, yet there is at the same time. Her words come out and hit harder than regular. With just her vocals for the most part being what you hear, there’s an honesty to what she says. The vocals come out as if they’re set in stone forever before the song peters itself out. Okay Kaya has no issue with run times, though here she could use possibly a bit more when it’s said and done.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. The Incompatible is available for preorder directly from Jagjaguwar Records ahead of its October 22 release date.
