La vie est ailleurs - Coeur de Pirate
La vie est ailleurs means
Life is somewhere else
She isn’t so amazing at live
but I do wanna fondle her,
courtesy me pirate,
harass me pirate-
La vie est ailleurs - Coeur de Pirate
Almaz - Sora Lee
I know, I know. Another Korean.
But my love for this lady is so much exploding that
a chance for me to show you guys this lady is such a pleasure.
She is my favorite Korean female singer by far.
The way she contains/expresses her emotions,
you can hear that she really cares about each note, each word.
And the texture and scent of her singing … ah .. perfect.
Family affair - Jae In Jang ( Mary J.B cover)
Her accent is too vivid to call this cover a great one.
But I just wanted to share with you guys
my favorite Korean indie female singer.
The way she sings and how she flinches her face …
ah … serendipity..
Dancing With The Devil- Lindsay Harris
This is a talented sultry bitch. Her covers are very technically sound, and I think she will develop into her soulfulness. but yeah, I enjoy hearing the sounds she makes, acoustically and vocally
Paganini Caprice No. 24 - Alison Balsom
Although she isn’t a singer, this is just an amazing piece of music. I can’t stop listening to it.
Never Forget You-The Noisettes
I love the style of the video. The do-wap girls doing the shoulder dance, the car, the fashion. it doesn’t tell a story, but the visuals bring you back to the 60’s or something. and Shingai Shoniwa is indeed sultry. Amy Winehouse-Corinne Bailey Rae mixed up together with even better hair.
Clementine - Sarah Jaffe
she is not beautiful, her voice is boyish and
everything about her fumes self-insecurity and
overdosed vulnerability. But the way she shifts
between notes, how she sings each word like
one word alone could express, but she needed
sentences to understand her own-thoughts.
I like her, I have been following her since her first E.P.
Her first regular album ‘The body always wins’
is overcooked steak with maybe too much salt,
but I like steaks and I like salty shits.
Priscilla Ahn - Dream
Not much needs to be explained here, I think. First heard her off a 2008 Christmas rendition of Silent Night (which is also absolutely beautiful, I’d highly recommend listening to that as well).
Skinny Love - Birdy
When I first heard this about a year ago, I didn’t know it was a Bon Iver cover. Now, I like Bon Iver a lot, but for some reason like this version of this song better. Most of her songs so far have been covers, but then again, she’s only 16 and she’s still in high school.
She was only 14 when she recorded this. You can hear the immaturity in her voice, but its a beautiful thing, not a criticism. It’s a raw thing.
Raise Erase - Olivia Pedroli
falling into deep indigo abyss,
the flashing moments of past
flocking their wings
not hoping for survival
but for landing without pain-
hoping for evaporating conscious,
a fine luxury.
This is so simple. I want to sit outside my hotel room and europe and play my songs like this. ”this is awesome” indeed, Jenn Wasner. I like the actual version of the song with the band better with the harmonies, but I love how songs can be diluted down to simple (and not-so-simple) acoustic forms. Maybe she is not beautiful to all, but she is beautiful to me.
Regina Spektor - Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)
I both know that you know Regina. But, I don’t care. For me, this isn’t a “find the unknown hottie with a great voice” blog, it’s to share what we love.
And I love the happiness that stems from this side of her voice.
Plus, she’s even better when she sings in foreign languages.
You won’t let me - Rachael Yamagata
I will do the first honor.
Okay, so maybe she ain’t so pretty.
But her voice is 3 a.m. tilting towards 4 a.m.,
it’s like most painful cigarette, waited and wanted
for so long, almost too long.
Her voice maybe speaks only one set of emotions
(sadness, loneliness and so forth)
but it speaks it damn well.
