Kid A. I wonder if anyone remembers her performing with The Bastards of Fate at the downtown library, Roanoke, VA, way back? She edges closer to warranted widespread recognition with a feature in Britain’s Guardian newspaper: “She’s the laptop lady from near the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia who brings new meaning to the phrase ‘lonesome pine’”.

Authenticity In Music. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
I wonder why I’ve been listening to the new Nick Cave album so much recently? It struck me today, it’s because it’s music that only a man of age 55 (Nick Cave’s age) could make! This is no negative thing, no way. This album speaks in a quiet, humble voice, that it’s possible to make better music at age 55 than when at age 25. It’s a rare thing. Music of humility. It even kinda makes you look more favorably towards older years, more respectful. The songs are unassuming, beautifully constructed, & of course blend spirituality & dirty old man tendencies in a way only Nick Cave can.
