Dessa (of Doomtree) is at RecordBar on Saturday

Dessa.
  • Dessa.
Parts of Speech, the latest from Dessa, is very much a rap album of 2013, which is to say it sounds only vaguely like a rap album. Dessa is a member of the Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree, where she's surrounded by strong rappers such as P.O.S. and has been steadily honing both her lyrical eye and her skills on the mic. On Parts of Speech, she's unwed to traditional ideas of what hip-hop is: She tries on ballads as well as raps, and even covers a Bruce Springsteen track ("I'm Going Down"). It's pretty accessible stuff, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Dessa on the pop charts in a few years. She'll almost certainly be playing bigger venues than RecordBar - although, bully for us that she is this time through.

Dessa. Saturday, July 27, at RecordBar. $12.
