Week 21 - PJ Harvey. I still remember the first time I listened to Dry, PJ Harvey’s first album. It just blew my mind. She was, with a lack of better word, so COOL. I haven’t heard anything like it before, she was intense, poetic, angry and damn sexy, just all around badass. She was the first artist I saw using a bottle neck with her guitar and I bought one the very next day and tried to use it and miserably failed it. It took me another 10 years before I tried it again… When I decided to go solo, I spent hours learning every single songs from Dry. There are other albums by her that I love, but Dry is the one that I always go back to. She is one of a few artists that truly changed me. And I’m very please to be able to pay homage to her by singing one of my favorite songs of hers which happened to be her first single.
