D -> DoNormaal (Jump Or Die)

This week, Seattle artist DoNormaal dropped a new tape Jump or Die. This album has been a long time in coming. DoNormaal has been touring Seattle with Raven Matthews, Wolftone and Brakebill for some time now. The collective under the moniker of 6950 or Northblend plays at houses, galleries, bars and any other venue tossed their way. Each time they make the space bounce.

DoNormaal has been a favorite local act of mine since I first saw her in the basement of the Fortress this past Summer.The first thing to catch my attention was the energy she brought to the mic. DoNormaal bares herself in her lyrics, she is completely comfortable in vulnerability. Her performances are proof of that.

With roots in New York and south California it makes sense she brings enough energy to shake Seattle out of its daily life. If you haven't had an opportunity to see her perform live yet I suggest you get out to one of many shows she plays with 6950. They happen about once a week, usually more. The next opportunity is this Saturday.

If you come out this Saturday you get to see her, and the rest of this amazing line-up for a suggested donation of $5 (no one gets turned away for funds). I'll also be hosting the event and introducing artists. Enjoy the new tape and check out local music.
