Hidden Gem: Basia Bulat “Infamous”

A friend of mine…she likes to sing in the car picked me up one day to get some tea. She had Basia Bulat’s fantastic Oh, My Darling totally cranked. Wow, who is this? She wasn’t sure how to pronounce her name but she passed her on to me, along…generously with the cd we were listening too. Tea and tunes does it for me every single time.

Fun Facts

  • Good Advice will be released on February 12, 2016 (tell your single friends!)

  • According to Basia: “It’s got fireworks and heartbreak and a disco ball and I can’t wait to share more of it with you really soon!” (Yes! Generous people are the best!)

  • My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James produced the album

  • This is Tall Tall Shadow from her last album of the same name

  • This is Snakes and Ladders (my favourite Basia tune!) from Oh, My Darling
