I have been quite sick for the last few days, like where I have had a faucet for a nose and I have just wanted to rip my head off and roll it down the street! It has also been raining here for the last few days as well and that has been a real treat. Also, Puma my kitty love also seemed to be sick yesterday and I almost freaked out, she just seemed not herself like she couldn’t get comfortable and that is always hard to watch. But this morning she seems back to her perky self all bright eyed and bushy tailed. I breathe a sigh of relief…

And I do have new music for everyone!

So the last couple of days with the rain and sickness around here I have been enjoying the sounds of Portland Oregon’s own Sarah O’Shura who is the voice and soul behind The Battle of Land Sea. She creates whimsical psychedelic indie-folk where she takes you on a journey through misty lands of lush beauty and it is all quite enchanting indeed. Two of my favorite tracks:

mp3:  Saltwater Queen

mp3:  The Beautiful Ones

The Battle of Land and Sea on myspace

Self-Titled Album 2008 (notenuf Records)

Available HERE and HERE

    Do NOT rip your head off and roll it down the street; head-bowling is prohibited in 16 countries and New Jersey.

    Get better soon…by the way, that’s good music!

    Damn straight it is! I like this one a lot actually.

    Thanks Chris! And thanks to your advice I have resisted rolling my head down the street this time but I can’t make any promises for next time. ;-) Glad you and Pip are both digging Ms. Sarah O’Shura.

    Her album is available on emusic, the second link up there.

    I find that my head is very difficult to put back on, so I just can’t recommend pulling yours off and bowling with it. Seems like this music should help with being sick, although Saltwater Queen has this slightly odd, mildly unpleasant dreamlike quality to it that seems like it might make one’s dreams a bit unpleasant. For waking hours, though, this band has a great sound. Thanks for the intro!

    hehe this is true WRE heads are not easy to put back on. But I am glad you like the music and maybe we should both vow not to remove our heads from now on. ;-)

    Yeah this is the one I meant but not that I posted Sia I figured you would also enjoy her. A female love fest!

    Hey Rach,

    So sorry, looks like I missed out on the get-well-soons! Hope you’re feeling better. If not, use that Cold F/X stuff. Used as directed, it really works! (Now I sound like a commercial)

  9. Rachel on January 31st, 2008 9:07 pm

    Thanks Mentok I feel much better now, but I will pass your get well wishes onto other people who got sick because of me. ;-)
