Saturdays are for sisters

Because I know my friend Andra is probably my most faithful reader I thought I would honor him with these videos.
He put me on to Antony and the Johnsons a while back and I thank him for it.

Antony is like a mixture between Tori Amos and Nina Simone yet totally unique. Those of us who are heavy into music will have heard of them, those who have not should give a listen.
Like a good Oscar film, Antony's voice is drama. The opening bars to "You Are My Sister" send shivers.
If you haven’t seeked them out I urge you to do so.

“Cripple and the Starfish”................“You Are My Sister”

"Hope There's Someone"................."Bird Gerhl"

I met him through Bjork, just when I thought there was no one as kooky as her in the world.
I love his cover of the David Lynch song.

He also does a great cover in Beyonce's 'Crazy in Love'
