In 1963, the history of electronic music was changed forever...

Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.16 "Doctor Who" By Bill Ruppert guitar pedals - YouTube

A Townes van Zandt song.

Got to see Rebecca Loebe perform in Windsor last fall. She's fantastic.

I've never seen Robby Hecht, but will go if he comes around.

Folk music at its best.

A live version of a beautiful song. Originally from the Garden State soundtrack, I believe.

shesingsnow: (music)
Saturday night I went to the UUS:E coffeehouse and sang - a capella - Barbara Kessler's "Making Mountains Out of Molehills." It was cheating a bit, because I was listening to the song in my ear. But I did it. Another performance down. I will work through the crippling singing-related stage fright.

Eric, the fellow I met at last month's coffeehouse and who was there Saturday night, had posted on Facebook that there was an Ellis Paul concert in Windsor on Sunday night.

One of the things I resolved to do, when I made the decision to stay here, was to spend more time going out to see musicians. This was excellent - someone I knew that would be there. It was a hella long drive for me - and a difficult one - but so worth it. So worth it.

It was incredibly healing - a cozy room of about fifty people and two singers (Ellis Paul and his opener Rebecca Loebe) who were outstanding. She was so good that I bought one of her albums and listened to it on the way home.

I couldn't keep my eyes dry, the entire evening.

Does make the music get even deeper under my skin. But that's also another story.

My favorite song from the evening:




I took some pictures, but Eric's are better so here's one of Ellis Paul, who was so moving, so brilliant:

I happened to click on a link before I stepped away from the computer - and I've found a few things -

First, Kate Peterson from the Michigan duo Nervous But Excited. I can't make out the words she's singing very well, but I found the guitar playing mesmerizing:

Rachel clued me into this band. They're fantastic. Wow. In the modern folk arena. They'll be at Falcon Ridge next month.

Lea Michele nailed this. Outstanding.

From this week's Glee, a song by Florence and the Machine:



I adore this song.

Very hard to pick, but this is my favorite song on the album.


Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose, get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hand in my father's glove

I run off where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping Beauty trips me with a frown
I hear a voice, "You must learn to stand up
For yourself 'cause I can't always be around"

He says, when you going to make up your mind?
When you going to love you as much as I do?
When you going to make up your mind?
'Cause things are going to change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change, my dear

Boys get discovered as winter melts
Flowers competing for the sun
Years go by and I'm here still waiting
Withering where some snowman was

Mirror, mirror, where's the crystal palace?
But I only can see myself
Skating around the truth who I am
But I know, dad, the ice is getting thin

When you going to make up your mind?
When you going to love you as much as I do?
When you going to make up your mind?
'Cause things are going to change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change, my dear

Hair is grey and the fires are burning
So many dreams on the shelf
You say I wanted you to be proud of me
I always wanted that myself

When you going to make up your mind?
When you going to love you as much as I do?
When you going to make up your mind?
'Cause things are going to change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead
I tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change, my dear

Never change
All the white horses
