So who is Thea Gilmore and do you recommend her? ;)

She's a slightly folky, slightly punky singer-songwriter - I put her in the same mental category as Richard Thompson, Alisha's Attic, Garbage, and Tori Amos, which is something like 'Really smart people who know what suffering feels like, and aren't going to take any shit about it.' The songs listed there are all downloadable in mp3 format from her website, http://www.theagilmore.com/ - I've just bought her CD 'Rules for Jokers' on the strength of those. I particularly recommend 'Nowhere' and 'The Dirt is Your Lover Now' out of that lot.

From 'Rules for Jokers', here's some of the lyrics to my favourite song.

This Girl is Taking Bets

This girl is a stencil of a brushstroke in the rain
She's a ghost of the city she's a body through the windscreen
This girl is the snowfall where the spring should have been
She's the stains on the pages of a top shelf magazine
This girl is a black eye she's a bruise on your knee
She's the ashes of the people that you really meant to be
