    To me she's always sounded like a less inventive Jesca Hoop. Still, she's very young and hopefully has her best work ahead. Anyway, I like the single but wouldn't be interested in hearing it more...

    I read plenty of treeware, but I'd rather not store it. There'd have to be another ten feet of shelving here to keep the books I've read on Kindles, and then they wouldn't be nearly so well indexed...

    They were found the next morning in the Bear Canyon CG. Way off-route, they'd built a huge fire and waited out the night.
