Rozi Plain

Rozi Plain's songs are exuberant and introspective, easily understood and mysterious, tuneful and unusual, plain-spoken and eloquent. Visiting from Bristol, England, Rozi performs in the WNYC Studio and chats about her music with host David Garland. Rozi sings and plays electric guitar, and The Pictish Trail (Johnny Lynch) sings back-up on a few songs and joins the discussion.

I never imagined anything would come close to the great post-punk bands of the 80's-Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Chameleons UK, Siouxie & the Banshees ect...but Rozi Plain, seemingly a twee indie folkstress, is actually the greatest act in history, regardless of genre.
And she does it seemingly without effort.
Her second album will be one of the most important in modern music. Just see her live, because I know this is hard to believe.

She is super awesome indeed, saw her last year play a beautiful but short set at 'end of the road' festival in Somerset/ Wiltshire border last September.
She is featured on a recent podcast : http://www.brokensoundmusic.com/podcast.htm
