One of our favorite musical finds of the last few years has to be Kawehi, with her wonderful sense of rhythm, buttery-smooth voice, and joie de vivre, the one-woman band is a real star. Here, she performs two tracks from another great artist, Björk – Joga and Army of Me.
Nineteen-year-old bedroom pop artist Clairo took off this year thanks to the DIY music video for her song Pretty Girl. She dropped by The End to perform an even more lo-fi version of her song Flaming Hot Cheetos. We think this should have been the track’s official version.
