Singer Helene Dineen's MySpace page
Elysian Fields, Sharkboy, Mazzy Star, Cowboy Junkies
Own, occasional covers
Highly recommended to Elysian Fields fans is anything by a group called Barefoot Contessa, who have a similar slow, languid style. a bit more lo-fi, but still dreamy and terribly laid back. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Oh the sweet power!
2000—Indie 500 Records
Helene Dineen, Graham Gargiulo
Barefoot Contessa, Oh the sweet power! is a beguiling thing if a bit short. Fans of Mazzy Star and the Cowboy Junkies should take heed. The version of the traditional song "Silver Dagger" runs chills down my spine. (email@example.com)
