good evening and happy friday night! so my very dear pal victoria was harping on me for months (literally) to give UK singer/songwriter kate nash a listen (join her on myspace) of course since i admit to being the biggest procrastinator around – i never quite got around to it but this past tuesday while i was doing my weekly music shopping at virgin – i saw ms. nash’s album made of bricks was released here in the states (she has already made a huge splash over in the UK – the album was released over there this past august) i picked it up and popped it in – and now i’m totally obsessed! i should have listened to ms. victoria (she was also the very first person to turn me onto lily allen) speaking of ms. allen…ms. nash is actually semi-similar with her storytelling lyrics & quirky brit vibe – but it’s different (and dare i say better!) plus her voice mildly reminds me of björk – i for sure have found my first favorite album of 2008! the song that sold me on her was foundations (the video is embedded below) i highly recommend giving her a listen – please don’t put it off like i did – kate nash is the fucking bomb! (i’m also loving the track mariella) popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo!
PS congratulations to three new hollywood moms…nicole richie, christina aguilera and courtney thorne-smith…they do say things always happen in threes! (actually there was a fourth hollywood baby born today to david alan grier and his wife christine y. kim – the stork sure was a busy beaver today!)
