Great stuff! She's got a little Joni in her voice...
Bukovac's episode is where I heard of her! I love the Homeskoolin' videos - a lot!Yeah, she's somethin' else! I've been going through her catalog…way impressive. Like Julian Lage, not afraid at all of dissonance. She's been getting shoutouts from a bunch of YouTubers recently too. Yesterday's installment of Tom Bukovac's Homeskoolin', for example, via the amazing piano/keyboard player Gordon Mote.
Tom, when I posted this thread, I knew you'd like her! Is it me or is there just a touch of Joni Mitchell in her vocals?I tend to like a lot of these "live" versions that she does quite a bit better than the official release videos!! I'm still listening..... put some more up. It's fun putting someone else in charge of the music every now and then!!
But I'll surely contribute.......
What I've found is when doing a studio recording, the anxiety of getting a "clean perfect take" often drains the energy out of the music. At least I find it to be so in my case (as a very unprofessional, undisciplined, and untrained musician). The best recordings are the ones where I don't care about mistakes and go for broke.IMO this version blows the studio recording off the field.
I hear the genetic material of Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke mixed together, gently sprinkled on a serving of Bjork.Madison has mentioned Joni Mitchell as a vocal influence, along with Jeff Buckley. I think Buckley may also have something to do with her fondness for "angular" guitar chords. She's also a huge Radiohead fan (me too!) and I think has some Thom Yorke vocal stuff goin' on at times.
