Sofia Talvik, our friend at the Useless Critic, is putting out her first EP in her LOVE series. She's also having a bunch of heavy metal bands cover her songs for the HATE series. I think that is a brilliant idea on her part.

if you haven't listened to Sofia, she's a folky singer-songwriter hailing from Sweden who has always sounded mysteriously Irish to me. don't know why. but her music is beautiful or else I wouldn't talk about it.

you can download a few tracks at her website, to get a further idea of what I'm talking about.

I am digging "Everyone's Favorite Concubine." title aside....

by the way, are you kids listening to the new Radiohead? I've been reluctant but it's pretty good.
