Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Ke$ha. If you have, in fact, taken residence inside a slab of granite, Ke$ha is a pop singer well known for her autotuned vocals and hard-drinking party girl image. What many people don’t realize is that Ke$ha is an extremely talented parody artist, and her Deconstructed EP is essentially a middle finger to the detractors who claim otherwise.
The Deconstructed EP takes four of her most popular songs (and one cover) and strips them down to the bare basics. Guitars and pianos replace synths and basses as beautiful, haunting songs are formed from the remnants of the originals.
