elegant bliss



Fiona Apple is one of those rare talents who seemed to get lost along the line somewhere. She isn't a household name. She isn't raking in the millions. She didnt release her songs just yesterday. She isn't doing anything wrong. Her songs are great. Her music is there. But it seems that there aren't many people out there who have discovered her.
It's time to discover perfection.

"The world is beautiful, but has a disease called man”
Friedrich Nietzsche                     

Paramore, although not quite in the alternative indie genre, still infrequently put out a great alternative song. Their acoustic versions of their main songs are often amazing and better than the original. They really show their variety in the song 'Misguided Ghosts', off their 2009 release of their 3rd Studio Album, 'Brand New Eyes'. It is very basic, simplistic and cute.

Love it!

"You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree”

Regina is such a great artist in many ways. She has merged modern pop with classic piano (the stuff your grandparents listen to). She has an amazing ability to stretch her vocals from high to low instantaniously, which add to her musical success. Spektor manages to revamp the piano to make it just a little less boring, and a bit more experimental and lively. You have to admire her talent displayed in her songs, however she has a decent amount of flaws within the songs. The type where you think to yourself "I would have done that note differently". This can be looked over though, because her rough patches, are only short in duration, often less than a second. This in no way, shape or form should lead one to under estimate what she worth as a singer/songwriter. She a gifted young artist with a long career still ahead of her.
