Michael Kiwanuka — “I’m Getting Ready” video

September 30, 2011


There’s something peculiar about the British soul singer Michael Kiwanuka’s “I’m Getting Ready.” With guitar that sounds like Dylan’s “Corrina, Corrina” and some voice that really reminds me of Van Morrison, too. I don’t know – that sort of sounds like a stretch to put out there, especially when I’ve only heard this track from him. But, I’ll take it right now, and I might throw it out in a month like I did for every Magnet single for the last three years. Oh, wait. The Wiki page for Kiwanuka says he’s been compared to “Bill Withers and Otis Redding, as well as Van Morrison and The Temptations.” Not bad, fella. Check out his blog, where he posts some youtube clips here and there and some for the taking, and a live clip of “I’m Getting Ready” on the Isle of Wight. His I’m Getting Ready EP is available via iTunes, so just download it illegally like everyone else.  Watch “I’m Getting Ready” below.
