// Magical Whimsical Femmes I -- las troubadourettes (nod to Moka).

This is not folk.
Folk es algo muy terrenal.
Esto es sublime.

.de etereo/from ethereal:

Paavoharju - Valo Tihkuu Kaiken Lap.
Linda Perhacs - Parallelograms.
George - Joy Could Be Here.
Jeff Alexander - Come Wander With Me.
Vashti Bunyan - Here Before.
Diane Cluck - Real Good Time.
The Bangles - Following.
Suzanne Vega - Song Of Sand.

:a mundano/to mundane.

Painting: Caminos Tortuosos by Remedios Varo.

Edit: info on the mps. Paavoharju are some born-again finnish who released a stunning otherworldly album last year. Linda Perhacs is the former hippie/now dentist assistant who got her sole album reissued and deservedly praised a few years ago. George is a Scottish (?) duo who just released a second album (Week of Kindness) some months ago. I got that Jeff Alexander song from The Brown Bunny soundtrack. Vashti Bunyan is... well, almost everywhere nowadays - rubbing elbows with the freakfolkers. Diane Cluck is a coffee shop troubadour from NYC, got that tune from a recent compilation. The Bangles tune is sung by the bass player - Michael Steele, a truly underrated and underappreciated songwriter and the Suzanne Vega one is from 99.9 F, my favorite album of hers.

    De cualquier forma son hermosas y vale la pena repostearlas para las nuevas visitas. Me encantan todas las demas! Los acordeones en la de George me encantan y acaban con la novena de beethoven! :) Gracias.
