Music to stay sane to....

A couple of pieces of music that have been keeping me sane while doing work for Uni.

As first impressions go, this video makes a pretty good one! I love the way it has been shot in a pub, with the band performing in possibly the smallest room ever, Lisa not getting the tambourine beating on time at the start, the kids that appear out of no where, its just got a great feel to it. After seeing it on Alan's blog I downloaded her album, Sea Sew, which is definitely worth a look. Might have to pick up a ticket or two for her gig in Belfast.

Man Like I by Natty has been out for about year, its another great album and has a real nice summer, good feel factor to it. Something which is quite nice to put on when the weather is starting to drop a bit. You can pick up a 3 track live e.p. from here for free.

The three e.p.s is another album that has been getting played out by myself. Like many others I came across the Beta Band purely by chance while watching High Fidelity (which by the way is a great film, and has an excellent soundtrack) and I'm quite glad I did, they are pretty awesome. The Three E.P.'s will not disappoint. Sadly they broke up in 2004, and this performance was to be there last. It's still pretty great, as is the "dry the rain" performance.

And an oldie but a goody. Dire Straits brothers in arms live, from the Brothers In Arms album. Old gold, nothing more to say!

It's great nipping round the blogs to see what people listen to.

That Lisa's a good kid.
