So I was doing some beard strokin’ the other day, and a long lost voice came over the speaker. Lia Ices is known to few; her album Necima came out waaaaaaaaay back in 2008. To accurately describe her as Fiona Apple’s good (/nice?) twin would be a disservice. Not only is she wonderfully and extraneously beautiful, but also vocally haunting and just *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*, well beautiful. She reminds me of an old poetry prof I had a thing for. If you have any particular attachment to your breath, run now, because she’s gonna steal it.
With drool in my beard, I’d like to share a favorite with you: Lia Ices.
RIYL: Cat Power, Feist, Fionna Apple
