The constantly evolving songwriter shows off new material and some of her world-class bass chops in this performance.

Meshell Ndegeocello started out on the D.C. go-go circuit in the late '80s and continues to impress and surprise with each recording, the latest of which is Weather. During this live performance, "Oysters" is a piece of wrenching beauty, a gorgeous love song with Ndegeocello's vocals as its focal point. The band got into a groove during "Dead End," which showcases her unique bass-playing style, but it's just one highlight of this unpredictable music veteran's terrific session at KCRW.
