Filed under: Lampsha Spins
Here I am, rushing in to get a spin together before I head off to violin with Tali (my daughter). It has become abundantly clear (sort of like an anvil dropping on my head) that I could actually write the Saturday Spin on say, Thursday evening in a more leisurely fashion. But we’ll talk about procrastination in another post.
For today, I’ve got Brandi Carlile (no relation to Kitty that I know of, Snuppy). She’s a young singer songwriter who hales from Ravensdale, Washington (somewhere due east? of Seattle) and I can’t get this song out of my head that I’ve been hearing lately. Let me know its effect on you, here without further adieu (see I don’t ALWAYS procrastinate) is THE STORY, the song to which I refer and is from the cd of the same title out in stores now. That “out in stores” does sound rather quaint since everybody seems to download from <insert favorite source of download here> rather than buy cd’s, but I’m a purist in that way. And uh, I’m getting around to thinking about buying an ipod.
Okay, I’ve got to run but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Brandi is already quite the little Gray’s Anatomy darling and a few of her songs have served as backdrops for some riveting televsion (well not that I watch much but according to this video, a lot is going on)! I didn’t want to feature it earlier because something gets taken away from the artist and the song when you’re getting caught up in your favorite TV show. So here, for all you Grey’s Anatomy fans see The Story:
And lastly, here’s a link to Brandi’s MySpace page where you can check out a few more tunes. And you’ll excuse having to live through a Castor Motor Oil commercial for the sake of The Story video on CMT, I hope it was worth it.
Okay, I’m out of here – have a great weekend.
