Poor Astrid Swan. I have been meaning to feature her as a song of the day for a year and a half and I bet she's a bit annoyed. She's really everything that I have adored in a singer -- wailey, eccentric, hystrionic, and overly dramatic -- since I found Kate Bush in the import bin at Pookie's Records when I was in tenth grade. Plus also she's Finnish! Now the drag is that she was just about to release a new record at the time and I'm sure she needed the push from me to push it over the top...
