This has nothing to do with religion. It’s just an amazing video by a wonderful singer — Lisa Hannigan singing “Knots” from her new album Passenger:
(via All Songs Considered)
That’s very joyously cool! Friendly even!
Fun video, cool song. If I had to be picky though, she’s not very good at miming.
Still, I think I may have to check out more of her work.
I have her last album. One of those artists that I really like 10-20% of what they do, and cant’ stand the rest of their songs.
My favorite on her last album:
I just love when one of my favorite sources of news and information shares from another one.
BEAUTIFUL! I love it! Thanks!
Loved this, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of an article I read a while back. When I was a teenager watching MTV in the 80s, videos were designed to be mini movies. The article talked about today’s videos being designed to be able to view on a phone or ipod, which this is such a good example of. Simple scene, one person filling a third of the screen.
Personal opinion, her best work was with Damien Rice, though I know they haven’t spoken since they split but still, his album “O” was amazing.
Awww… I was kinda hoping she had covered this: http://youtu.be/EYUSB1QzPe0
Nice song. I loved Sea Sew (her first album) and I’m glad look forward to hearing the new stuff.
O is a better album than Sea Sew, and probably this new one as well, but I think her solo career is off to a fine start. I don’t think she’s as much as a perfectionist as Damien (who is?) so she’s able to put fine music out at a normal pace. I have no objections.
Yep, I’m with you on this. Her few good songs are *really* good, but the rest are meh at best.
I feel this concept has been covered before – only with food.

Everyone should learn to play the uke. They’re awesome instruments.
That looks very Holi.
Hemant, why are you foisting this obvious Hindu propaganda on us?
