is Anna-Lynne Williams from Seattle. She began her musical career in the late 90's with Matt Brown in the indie-band Trespassers William. Later, both worked also on different side-projects. Lotte Kestner is William's solo project she started in 2008. It's dreampop-indie-shoegaze presented with a very captive voice. Her album «Stolen» is a unique collection of cover-songs ranging from New Order, Bon Iver, Vic Chesnutt to Kent.
It was the 90's.
You know, I love the intimate ones. David Bazan at a house show in Kirkland. Or Damien Jurado playing alone in a record store. That's my favorite stuff.
Right now it's «The End Of The World» by Aphrodite's Child. I get to break out a hybrid of ballet and Woodstock hippie moves.
Anything off of «Disintegration» by The Cure. It's funny how that album used to comfort me when I was young, now I think it would be too much to take.
I'm still looking for «Kyst» by Under Byen. It's expensive shipping that double vinyl from Denmark...
Honestly? The «Xanadu»-soundtrack. My big sister had it on vinyl. I knew all the songs and even came up with some choreography.
Annie Lennox is cool.
I wouldn't want anything with words. Something classical and uplifting. I don't think I've found it yet. But if it were to be a pop song, I'd be redundant and say «To Be The One» by Idaho. Go out with the words: «What you're talking about is pure...»
There was a beautiful summer where Trespassers William got to go to Europe twice for some festivals. We don't often get to go over there in the sunny season. While we were in France, i heard «Talkie Walkie» by Air for the first time.
Oh my goodness, «Holster» by Hayden is a really good one. «If he gets any closer I'm gonna put on my holster, have a showdown with him on your street. Or maybe I'll just write to him, and tell him that he'll never win your heart because it belongs to me.» I think that song's only on his live album. I heard him play it in Hollywood. Yes.
Right now it's the new Big Boi album.
With my own money probably Madonna's «Immaculate Collection». She was my first idol.
I always get my friends to sing that one with me at shows. Gives me the chills to hear their voices blend together.
I wouldn't. But if I had to maybe the guitar intro from the opening track off of Interpol's «Turn On The Bright Lights».
Something by Pearl Jam. Eddie has a sweet voice.
Anything off of «Voodoo» by D'Angelo. The videos don't hurt either.
It already sounds epic, like it's in flight.
Aww, maybe «Morning Has Broken» by Cat Stevens.
I might as well just tattoo those lyrics all over my body.
