Jolie Holland

Her Texas accent is so pronounced she sounds Australian.

I have a strong Texas accent. I thought people were kidding when they asked if I was from Australia. I'm so used to being kidded about my accent.

I put Jolie Holland's name in Pandora and got some great music to listen to. Thanks, Eric.

Man, I am so out of it, I don't recognize one name on that long list. Maybe I should see if the Smithsonian needs any more fossils.

@Dennis

An easy way to get up to speed on what all the kids are listening to non-ironically these days is to stream a college radio station for a couple of days. My alma mater's station is fairly decent. They regularly play about half the stuff on Katherine's awesome list.

For the older folks, I was just listening to a young jazz singer named Jane Monheit, and have to say her phrasing is about as tasteful as I've ever heard.

As good a place as any to leave this tip:

I found a nice free song today at iTunes today called "Far Far" by Yael Naïm. She's the one who does the song playing behind the airbook commercial.

I noticed her voice has a similar quality to Feist who does the song on the recent iPod nano commercial.

Oh yeah. I forgot to mention to listen during the day on weekdays. Saturday and Sunday they play nothing but show tunes, a capella, kids songs, R&B, punk rock, and Jewish/Israeli music.

Here's an interesting little video. Cuban piano players always have an assortment of ways to allot notes in a measure.

some folks might call these recordings "ambient", but the instrumentation is
more interesting than the usual electronic wallpaper, and song structures
merge with environmental drones. helps me when the pressure is on.

stars of the lid - avec laudenum
autechre - quaristice
alva noto + ryuichi sakamoto - vrioon
fennesz + sakamoto - cendre
phill niblock - guitar too for four

If they cancelled this one, it might require explaining why others, even more zanily off-topic, didn't get cancelled.

The Foxglove Hunt. The synth work is awesome, awesomely good and awesomely bad. Can't wait to get the CD.

The only new album I’ve picked up is Nine Inch Nails Ghosts. I’ve given up on keeping up with music—there’s just too much going on now. I could easily devote seven nights a week just to seeing local bands!
