Song of the day – 209: She Makes War

She’s got something. Not sure what. Earnestness. Arrogance. Innocence. A capacity for self-promotion. An unblinking gaze. The video signifies, “A retelling of the Apollo-Daphne-Cupid story with a home made tree and paper hearts”. In case you wondered. (I wonder if she likes Bat For Lashes as well as Amanda Palmer? Hardly matters. She’s way more interesting. I’m still not convinced that there’s any substance to Natasha’s songs.)

I like the fact the music is direct, unadorned.
There’s no hiding from She Makes War.

    You’re right – she does have something, and I also don’t know what. It’s a lot gentler and more tuneful than I was expecting. I’m trying to think what it reminds me of, but coming up blank. I like the way it can consist of so little and yet remain so interesting.

    Everett – thanks so much for featuring the video, I always love the newest one the best and it’s lovely to see that people have been watching 🙂

    Princess Stomper please make sure you have a listen to some of the other songs as well, the album is available on a pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth basis with a bunch of extras here: http://www.shemakeswar.bandcamp.com
