This is my favorite video of theirs, capturing a magical moment of childhood perfectly.

Some works-in-progress pics to be posted soon, I promise! In the meantime, enjoy!

Tuesday Tunes


There are few things I never try to justify spending money on…music and books. Both are integral to my creative process, and often fuel my desire to create, or sometimes push me to work longer. My tastes span a variety of genres, from medieval songs to metal, jazz to dark wave, and I’m always open to listening to anything new and unusual. One of my favorite musicians, whom I stumbled upon while searching CD Baby is Jill Tracy. Evoking smoky cabarets and absinthe-drenched nights, Ms. Tracy’s voice and lyrics are a true delight for the ears.

Bat for Lashes

I have been smitten with Bat for Lashes since Natasha Kahn’s interview on NPR’s Soundcheck a couple years ago. Inspired by Kate Bush, well-written lyrics, and a dream-like quality pervade Bat for Lashes first album, Fur and Gold, and I’m hoping the second, soon to be released album, Two Suns, will provide more of the same (though of course, some change is par for the course). From what I’ve heard so far of her new single “Daniel”, I doubt I’ll be disappointed.
