Amanda Blank - Might Like You Better

Tuesday, August 11, 2009 | |

Woo it's been a while folks! Here is a nice welcome back treat, a video by the most badass woman in music right now, Amanda Blank. Her new album I Love You came out on the 4th and is totally worth buying. Yes, actually buying and not downloading. Her talents extend far beyond the brand of dirty rap exemplified by her breakout appearance on Spank Rock's "Bump", singing soulfully alongside Lykke Li on "Leaving You Behind" and demonstrating her love for new wave on tracks like "Make Up" and "Big Heavy". I defy anyone to not want to get down to "Might Like You Better". It is for sure a single of the year contender in my book, and the video is directed by Superfad.
