The third and final of Kathleen's three residency shows at the Drake Underground last year is another keeper-the performance, and the recording, are superb as always. Kathleen has a few dates in the U.S. over the next couple weeks and then it's off to a sold-out tour with Bon Iver in Europe. These residency shows provide a taste of what's to come and showcase her new band feeling their way through old and new material. I saw Kathleen perform "Chameleon" as a solo acoustic piece in 2009, but the electric, full band treatment suits it much better. Can't wait to hear the new songs live, as well as the final studio versions.

Notes on SQ: Superior throughout.
