Beth Jeans Houghton - Sweet Tooth Bird

Pick of the Week 29 – Beth Jeans Houghton and the Hooves of Destiny

For some strange reason I love this song. It’s quirky folk muisc that sounds like it comes from another reality. Her voice somehow resonates with me, the lyrics are original and it possesses a lack of commercial appeal in the same league as PJ Harvey and Regina Spektor.

The video meanwhile is something else entirely. What the hell is going on in this post apocalyptic world? Surely they should be out searching for food rather than coloured plastic trinkets? On the plus side, gas masks, slow motion sick and those orange plastic buoyancy rings are always a good thing in most circumstances. High marks for effort, but a maximum score for quirkiness. Definitely someone to watch in the future.
