In 2001, I fell in love with Res' kinky twists and cool vocals. Her video, "They Say Vision" led me to buy her album How I Do. How I Do (released in 2001), continues to be one of my favorite projects. The album is filled with lots of guitar and stirring lyrics showcased Res' lovely yet gravel tinged vocals. My opinion, Res is one of the most underated black rock-stars of recent years.
Now, Res and longtime friend/collaborator, Talib Kweli joined forces to create a hip-hop/electro group called Idle Warship. The group has new album, Habits of the Heart, and continues to tour overseas.
