Today on Ecléctico you're listening to Cassandra Jenkins, a musician and singer from New York City. Her music on this song comes from things falling apart. Jenkins puts everything back together as best as she can, including the disparate words and conversations of others that act as a thread through it all. The result is a transformation.

You'll go deeper with an excerpt from and a link to a review by Sam Sodomsky on Pitchfork.

In the elegant and kaleidoscopic “Hard Drive,” New York songwriter Cassandra Jenkins lets us in on a series of conversations. There’s a security guard with a Queens accent, a bookkeeper at an inn in California, a driving instructor named Darryl, and a psychic with gemstone eyes at a friend’s birthday party. They all seem to want Jenkins to relax her mind and open her heart to the world around her—which is, of course, easier said than done.
