All echo and no substance.

In your opinion.

I, however, think it's heavy with substance.

El MaƱana by Gorillaz - http://youtu.be/hji4gBuOvIQ

It's actually a bit of some distorted 3-some trying to make it; very rare, better than some of the other rare things. They also wrote lots of songs based on a light bit of ballad, blues and grunge rolled into a a musical stew-- that would be why she's half hoarse to sing, I'd imagine. Perfect Chaos is a great album I once legitimately got for free at any rate; I like it better than a lot of other adult contemporaries in the same bin that get tossed out, considered Snores Vile by myself.

Anni Piper does it over the top, too; you should like her Chasing Tail album. She does very energetic blues with some lyrics eschewed away from the river blues back in the era, and instead made into something enlightening from her own lyrics. Good stuff if you check it out, too.

The pedal steel guitar combined with a little piano and a soft, pink clouded larynxed lady carrying tambourine sounds nice and dreamy instead of made from dischord and a shorter number of Mz. She has a great voice, but it's certainly higher than those with someone considered a Tom Waits woman in characature.

I know what you're saying, Cerulise, and I think most of it is down to taste.

I tend to go for the most 'folk' side or 'Indie' side of rock.

Sometimes there's a few licks of country in there - two bands like that are Mazzy Star and Band of Horses .. but, for me they have to have something exceptional, be it a voice, a guitarist or the entire package.

There are tons of great female singers out there doing folksy bluesy rocky types of music .. but something, for me anyway, remains missing.

One of America's greatest female singers is a woman called Maria Taylor, both solo and in the band Azure Ray, but why isn't she as famous as Miley Cyrus?

Talent doesn't need fame to be great.

One of my favourite singers currently is a Norwegian girl called Siri Nilsen.

I'll post one of her songs next.

The singers name in Mazzy Star is Hope Sandoval, and yes .. she has a voice perfect for that music.

Or perhaps the music could not have existed in this form without her voice?
