So here goes. Open album, music on shuffle, fingers ready to review. But to be honest, I had heard Nicola Robert’s ‘Beat of My Drum’ way back in August. I wanted to play it at my friend’s birthday party SO BAD, and the best part was that she seemed to like the song and find it just a dance-able to as I did. But that was before she decided that it was way out of her budget to have a beach house...

Merchants and Thieves- Sandi Thom
I always play music in shuffle. That way, when I really like a track, I actually go back and look it up on the listings. So when I played Sandi Thom’s most recent album- Merchants and Thieves, I found myself doing that pretty often. Starting with ‘Belly of the Blues’.

The movie opens with a depiction of this practice, as a new-born baby girl is drowned in a vessel of milk with the father hoping...

Sita Sings the Blues Soundtrack →
Lovely. Carefully chosen. So apt. Note: There is background melody that keeps repeating throughout the movie, when the story of the American couple is being played out. I couldn’t help but notice that, this sounds VERY similar to this instrumental piece from the soundtrack of an Indian movie. It’s at about 1:35 till about 1:45 here- http://www.saavn.com/popup/psong-JjUBkkJA.html....
Sita Sings the Blues!
Well hello there! I just saw this movie, which is not copyrighted, but registered with a Creative Commons License, and it is called ‘Sita Sings the Blues’. The name, probably a play on ‘Lady Sings the Blues’. It is by Nina Paley and it is animated. Now that we have the dry deets behind us, let me tell you that this movie, in a single word, is Riveting. And you should take...
