Andrew Bird - Tables And Chairs
A delicate little one-man indie song with interesting lyrics and nice smooth vocals
Andy Stochansky - Stutter
A kind of bitter angsty song (She doesn't care/breathe the same air/I don't have a hope in hell) with touches of seventies rock laced through solid singer/songwriter material
Ani DiFranco - As Is
I compare people to Ani enough, I thought it was time to play some of her stuff. This song showcases her great lyrics and her sense of story telling and character description, although is much less depressed and/or angry than some of her other music
Augustana - Boston
This song has a really pretty piano intro, and is indie and cute and <3
Belle And Sebastian - Get Me Away From Here (I'm Dying)
A light tenor voice and very unusual lyrics are the characteristics of this lovely song.
Beth Orton - Ooh Child
Old school songstress. Lots and lots of soul in this one.
Cake - Sheep Go To Heaven
A funny, lively song with a catchy beat and unusual instrumentation.
Carla Bruni - Le Plus Beau de Cartier
French, airy, and very pretty, but not without character and feeling.
Copeland - Brightest
Indie boy with piano and sweet, if unique, lyrics (and she said I was the brightest/ little firefly/in her jar)
David Berkeley - Jefferson
This song starts oddly--I don't really like the first twenty seconds at all--but the rest is oh. David Berkeley sings with such feeling. He really believes the lyrics he writes. And his voice is lovely.
