Track of the week : Kimya Dawson – Walk Like Thunder

I reviewed Kimya Dawson’s kids album ‘Alphabutt‘ last week, so I thought that this week I’d choose my favourite grown up track of hers as my Friday music recommendation.

Walk Like a Thunder is a song about coping in the face of adversity and tragedy. We saw Kimya perform an especially emotional version of it on the day she had learnt of a friend’s death.

It’s a song that makes me cry but also gives me strength. In a year when people I care about have had too much tragedy in their lives, and on a day where another friend has lost someone they love, it seems an appropriate choice.
