sunday songs ~ april smith and the great picture show

this week i was doing some work, listening to some music in itunes, when april smith and the great picture show came on. have you heard of her? her album's been around for awhile, but she's pretty great. i'll never forget the first time i saw her live. this song pretty much bowled me over:

(it is really, really worth a listen.)



i love that it's the total opposite of the typical "oooh, baby i want you/ i need you/ i'll do anything for you" type of song... even though she's trying so hard to convince us, you don't quite believe she's not thinking about him.


here's another gem. i don't like this song particularly as much, but the video is awesomesauce. i think it has to do with the fact that i prefer her live show to her recordings. but anyway, the video is very dexter-esque... you must see!




hope you like! xx

  3. Oh! I'd totally forgotten about her! I remember one of my friends showed me that music video and I laughed so hard at it.

    From the examples you gave, I'd be inclined to think I'd like her better live, too. I'll have to check her out sometime.
