Doctor Blind, Just Prescribe the Blue Ones...

If Tim Burton was ever looking for another composer to collaborate with his main boy Danny Elfman, I'd suggest Emily Haines. Emily Haines is an inventive and melancholy artist who knows how to use those orchestra strings while adding a electronica/grunge spin to it all. Her music is dramatic with a strong piano ballad foundation, and she took her time crafting together her first solo album, Knives Don't Have Your Back, in order to ensure a quality and amazing piece of work for all of us to enjoy. Take a listen.

YES -- one of my favorite albums of 2006.

I've only heard her from Metro (youtube's Portrait of a Girl and another) and her covering a Neil Young song. I think her voice and compositions are pretty damn awesome. Thanks for sharing the mp3.
