"An Ocean and a Rock," Lisa Hannigan

Last week, Turtle was telling me about her newfound respect for singer Lisa Hannigan, who we both previously knew from her work in a few of Damien Rice's songs, i.e. "Volcano." Upon Turtle's recommendation, gave Lisa's solo album Sea Sew a listen. Hannigan's work is fantastic, quite a far cry from the kind of intensity present in Rice's songs, but beautiful too -- their intensity tempered with a certain whimsicality. 

Here's my favorite track (so far):   

Thoughts of you, warm my bones
I'm on the way, I'm on the phone,
Lets get lost, me and you,
an ocean and a rock is nothing to me.
