“Crowd Pleaser” by Mal Devisa

We’ve heard far too little from indie artist Deja Carr (AKA Mal Devisa) since her 2016 debut LP Kiid. But please don’t take that as a criticism of her productivity — she reportedly was hospitalized in April while taking steps to release an as-yet-unannounced follow-up album. I just think she’s infinitely talented and (selfishly) am anxious to hear more.

So you could imagine my delight when “Crowd Pleaser” — a powerful, percussion-heavy collaboration with Brooklyn-based producer Tony Seltzer (and today’s featured song) — dropped out of the sky a few weeks back. Hopefully it means more tunes are on the way from the promising Northampton, Massachusetts-based artist.
