  4. music to be born to, music to die to

    oh gosh, i would say the Amelie movie soundtrack has it all. wish i could be born again to comtine d'un autre ete. on the other hand, a funeral to some marissa nadler would be quite fitting i think. or wait, maybe "white shoes" by conor oberst. i do love that song! what an awesome topic. I just can't make up my mind. i think the perfect funeral soundtrack (mine or anyone's) would/should also include dead can dance, this particular song:
  5. Wow, thanks so much, Kot! I'm hooked on Orlova now. Just bought her CD from justmusicstore.com. What a soulful artist, she's so tuned in. And holy shite, I can't believe she's only 21! I speak a bit of Russian and loved everything I was able to understand, and all the Lithuanian stuff just somehow makes sense anyway even though I don't understand any of it. Just fell instantly in love with her the way I did with Regina and Lisa Hannigan, etc. Thanks again.

  10. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    awesome! i'm still waiting for mine today. i haven't even listened to sword and pen yet, just cause i have a feeling it's one of regina's best songs and since i've listened to everything else, i'm going to abstain on this one. you're in princeton, nj? i'm up in new brunswick! hopefully mine is arriving shortly! wonder what number i have on my litho.
  11. A Drive into Eastbourne

  12. A Drive into Eastbourne

    That was awesome of you to share! I could picture you on the adventure. What a special day. I'm waiting for mine to be delivered here tomorrow... Loved this part: "Far... is a revelation"! I bet it is! Thanks.
  13. Review of "Far"

    Let the dogs bark, Regina's been soaring all along. It's all there in her work, her work is timeless and speaks for itself. Like someone else already said here, all these reviews point out ultimately, is the reviewers' own superficiality and, most definitely, a job carelessly done. What I'm wondering is, who pays these idjits?
  14. Additional far Tour Dates

    BOSTON! YES!! It'll be my first too!!
  15. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    Yes, all the ones you mentioned, JosephCa64, and "Blue Lips" the way it was played on Jools (though I can't help loving the album version just as well), they're all brilliant pieces. I don't play any instrument, but I know a brilliant composition when I hear one. This woman blows me away. The whole album is a real jewel. Although I would have preferred "Blue Lips", "The Wallet" and "OMTWF" to have not changed so much as in the album, I'm still over the moon with the whole production. "Folding Chair" has actually become the perfect summer song! :-)
