Getting Back to Basia

The new Basia Bulat album is out today!  Yay!

Basia who?  I know, I know.  She's not exactly a household name.  But if you hear her voice just once, you'll swoon. It's totally indescribable.

And did I mention she was discovered by Howard Bilerman of Arcade Fire, i.e., the masters of weird instruments?  Yeah, she plays the autoharp.  And "All Songs Considered" named "In the Night" one of 2008's best songs?  I love the visuals for "In the Night" almost as much as I like the song: in my dreams, I often play pied piper to a drum-playing bunny, dancing skeletons, and masqueraders.

I'm listening to the new album today while writing and job searching.  It's a good day.

By the way, did you enter the giveaway?  You should!

I heart Arcade Fire. Thanks for the intro to Basia.

i saw her play live in the basement of a wee bar in belfast - totally awesome and had the crowd completely silent throughout the set (which is pretty impressive in a city known for people talking annoyingly through gigs). must check out her new album...

@ toomuchfiction: I am so jealous. Did she have the full band with all of the weird instruments?
