The Viewfinder: “Medicine” by CirKus

Neneh lives! But if you’ve been a regular reader of this here blog, you already knew that, since we wrote up a piece on her dope sophomore album “Homebrew” and also provided you with a listen to CirKus , a project that not only includes the lady herself, but her husband, supa-producer Booga Bear (AKA Cameron McVey) and their daughter.

What leaves me a little cold is that she seems to have sexed […]
