Your Daily Lick: FEMI

Oakland's FEMI flows like water on this easy-listening soul sampler. Syncopated drums and lightly popping bass lines lend her songs a funk flavor, but in the end - with the exception of Latin standout "If I Knew" - they're soul through and through. Her gentle voice doesn't lead like it could, blending into a romantic tapestry of flute, keys, guitar, and percussion.
