Pelageya is a judge on The Voice Russia. I like watching her on this show.
I can't tell ya'll how many times now I have discovered an amazing band, jumped on this thread to post my excitement, only to find I had already posted them. Does this ever happen to anyone else? I dont know how I forgot about Hundred Waters, but the deeper irony is that I rediscovered them while listening to another band that I had the same experience of posting, forgetting, and rediscovering recently - Sylvan Esso whom I am now in love with..and in youtube's suggested listening column on the sylvan esso video... hundred waters... life is funny... and my wallett is begging me for mercy... ;-)
My issue with female vocals is that it's difficult to find a female singer who is in the vein of music I like. All of my music is male vocals, oddly enough. Except for My Bloody Valentine. While some of their earlier stuff, I don't like how the vocals sound, it sounds very awkward, their second album and onwards, they nailed the vocals. I think it's quite beautiful, I hope to find more female vocals that fit into the type of music I like.
It's not the best female vocals I've heard necessarily, but it's the best female vocals I've heard along with having music that I absolutely love.

HAH!! I was listening to this with my headphones on and at 3:35 into Pale Lung, I looked out the window to see what the sirens were all about. Adding her to my library. Much Thanks.
