    For the past few weeks, I've been discovering (and re-discovering!) some really great artists.

    Most notably, Veda Hille (thank you cloudtrapeze and Passioneer for the recommendation and tracks!). Evocative, beautiful, really involving and passionate, sometimes haunting -- somehow extremely familiar and really out there at the same; reminds me of a bunch of other artists but I can't pin her down at all. (Did that make any sense?) Really great, I can't believe more people don't know about Veda! I highly recommend her music already and I'm definitely going to seek out CDs ASAP... Highlights for me: Birdsong, Plants, Born Lucky, Bellyfish, Strange, Sad.

    I also very recently purchased a Sarah Harmer CD and a Ani DiFranco CD, kind of random purchases, and I usually only purchase things when I really know the music. I think it's going to take me some time to really warm up to Sarah -- I like her music, especially Pendulums but something throws me off a little, I'm not sure what. I'm sure I'll start liking it a lot more soon. …
