"So Beautiful, and T-t-terrible"

That's what some music does to me ... the good kind that is. (photo by dutchess of feshu)

Oh Daytrotter, where would I be without you? lost more than likely. A while ago they introduced me to a wonderful little group that goes by the name My Brightest Diamond. While the group is respectfully more than one person, Shara Worden essentially is My Brightest Diamond. More (internal) soul than Winehouse, less conventional than Yorke, just as crazy but more collected than McKay. Her stuff is good, straight up, flat out. Don't believe me? Listen to this live set I snatched up (respectively) from Kwaya Na Kisser. (p.s. this post in mostly in response to the great many requests for a re-up over at Kwaya Na Kisser, which is one of the best damn blogs out there. Go check it out. Daily.)
