In the dark nights of Hoquiam, secluded in her home studio / bedroom, Rahkout works out melodies and rhythms. She plays with syncopation, and experiments with genres as much as instruments. “I mixed these songs for myself,” she says. “And it’s altogether ridiculous.” But her album Cashing In My Heart (2010, Mighty Kitten Records) proves just the opposite. She darts from playful songs and hip hop beats to wonderfully creative numbers like TK.

And she’s generous – Cashing In My Heart is available free, right here. Go ahead, grab it – you know you want to.

Oh, and her FCC Amateur Radio call sign? KD7JNO. For real.
