Being so busy with my new photoblog, I almost forgot my podcast today ;-) Here's a very beautiful song by Hangnail Phillips. It has some blurb at the beginning, so don't stop playing after a few seconds, it gets a lot better :-)
I can't resist. Here's another fine song by Monika Bullette — "The Laziest Gal In Town", an acoustic cover version of a Marlene Dietrich song from Alfred Hitchcock's "Stage Fright". This is a live recording from June 2005.
"Show me" is the first song from Monika Bullette's debut album "The Secrets". Pretty nice rock song.

A beautiful mixture of sort of a poem (word spoken by Junko Yanagida, with a very soft voice), accompanied by a flute and rhythmic drums. The first part of the text is spoken in Japanese (I don't understand a word, but luckily there's an English translation in the comments section). The second part is spoken in English and even gets a little symphonic touch (more instruments and a choir in the background), very nice...
