URB’s nasty homegirl Amanda Blank, is up to some big things. With her album out and a pretty good buzz that never seems to stop developing, Ms. Blank is on her way up in this world. A great live performer, Amanda is about to embark on a tour with Matt & Kim. Below, enjoy a nicely shot performance of Spank Rock‘s BFF at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, and be sure to keep your eyes open for upcoming tour dates.
Amanda Blank indeed slides through her fair share of risque territory on bangers like "Might Like You Better" or the dub-oozing "Something Bigger, Something Better." However, while carnal lust is certainly fulfilled on the album, the harsh realities, which begin the morning after said-tracks, which subsequently sprout ...
This is the second track released from Amanda Blank’s upcoming debut album, I Love You. It’s not disimilar to the first track, “Might Like You Better,” with it’s up-beat quasi-’80s pop feel. Which is only surprising because the other seven songs on the album have surprisingly diverse styles, including ’80s slow jam “A Love Song” and ’80s electro groover “DJ Play That Shit.” Ok, so Miss Blank loves the ’80s. And I guess it’s not surprising that they’re trying to frame her as this years Santigold. I’m just saying there’s more to I Love You than what you’ve Maybe heard so far, and that’s a good thing.
