Drastic Fantastic

I'm not writing about the Red Sox today.

Instead, I'm writing about one of my favorite young performers, KT Tunstall. I fell in love with her music with her first release, "Eye To the Telescope." I was listening to it long before any of the songs made radio play, and now they're all over the radio. "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" became immensely popular, as did "Suddenly I See," which was my favorite track on the album, again, before it hit the airwaves.

Well, her new album was released last week (on 9/7). I'm not sure if the initial release was UK only (she is Scottish), or not. Yahoo! Music Unlimited currently has one song, "Someday Soon," which I have just listened to, and the UK Amazon site has a video of another song, "White Bird." The album is called, as the title of this post so aptly suggests, "Drastic Fantastic." The cover of the album suggests a little more electric guitarness on this album, however, both the Yahoo! song and the Amazon video are acoustic to the max. I love both songs, though. I'm going to try to put the link to the video here. Let's see if it works.

By Jove, I think it worked! Huzzah!

Oh, and, speaking of "Huzzah!" do y'all know what tomorrow is??? (That would be September 19.) Well, besides being the tenth anniversary of Rich Mullins's tragic death, it's TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!!! Arrrrrr.....

TTFN, y'all
