Music Monday: Dessa - “Poor Atlas”

April 29, 2013

Dessa is a badass. And the self-described atheist is on tour promoting her newest single “Warsaw.” While she may best be known for her participation in the Minneapolis based indie hip hop collective Doomtree, Dessa has an extensive collection of solo tracks including today’s Music Monday song of the week, “Poor Atlas” from her 2010 album A Badly Broken Code.

I highly suggest grabbing a ticket if you if you happen to live near any of the stops on her Early Words tour. 

As always, if you get a chance, send your suggestions for future Music Mondays to me at, leave a comment below, or @tweet us at @CFIOnCampus. Your suggestions, along with future and past songs, may end up in the official Course of Reason Music Monday Spofity playlist that anyone can listen to.
