...and in keeping with the arty, steampunk theme...

I posted an Emilie Simon song not long ago, but I also love her Bedford Avenue Sessions on YouTube.

She has this fabulous gadget gauntlet with synthesizer and drum buttons. I love the broad, free-wheeling range of her vocals (evocative of the fearless growling and sweet cajoling of Kate Bush) and her way of weaving sound textures with electronics. Then there's her mode of dress -- each session, she's wearing a spangly something she must have found in a thrift store, but these frocks never looked more fresh or spiff, I'll bet.

Super-cute! Love her.
