Sounds on Sunday

My #blogjune Sounds on Sunday set cannot be complete without Radiohead. Consistently in my top 3 fave music makers, Radiohead are perhaps my favourite band. Too hard to call, yes, but probably. Fave song is outright too hard to choose. Here’s one of my faves from Amnesiac:

I’m quite ill right now, so this fits my mood. Did you know Radiohead got their name from a Talking Heads song? Cool huh?!
Do you have a favourite Radiohead song? Or album?
Care to share any Radiohead sound-alike recommendations please? I’m always looking for new music! :)

True story. The 3min version, thankfully. Watch the 1st 3mins of the video & try to imagine 9 library staff performing…

Yup! Performing in front of all council staff, from the GM down, at our Rewards & Recognition Awards Night. This. Friday! (gulp)
Now, I better rehearse, and if you’re the praying type, please do đŸ˜‰

SinĂ©ad O’Connor is another of my fave artists. I don’t adore all her albums, but she remains a mainstay in my fave list.
Choosing a favourite song is always hard, but for the longest time, my favourite of hers has been Troy from The Lion and the Cobra.
Enjoy…

Powerful huh?!
I got this close to seeing her live a few years ago, but that’s another story. My mates got me a tour t-shirt though!
Have you seen her?

Any hot tips of sound-alike artists for me? :)

Apart from libraries and learning, one of my other loves is music.

If you don’t know My Brightest Diamond, do yourself a favour & check her out. Lead singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/composer Shara Worden is hands down one of my favourite artists.

Here’s one of her newer songs:

There’s more clips & photos on my first Storify post here.

You like? Any recommendations for me pls? I love getting hot tips :)
