    Recently I've been utterly fascinated by Billie Eilish, as much for the visuals as for the music, but the music certainly fits what she's doing. This is like... psychological horror minimalism, or something. Almost Kubrick-esque:

    How do you classify this? Some contrived rhymes and dubious "scat" singing. I do like the "oompah" bass though.

    ^ Pretty sure that's just a pastiche of early (20s?) jazz. Kinda like when Brian Setzer was doing 50s rock in the 80s, or how many so many contemporary bands/artists are going back to 80s synth pop.

    I remember the Pasadena Roof Orchestra were much in the same groove.

    True, I enjoy them as well, reminiscent of the 1920s/30s small ensembles playing in posh tea rooms, hotels etc.

    Still on the nostalgia with a bit of comedy



    This has become a bit of an earworm for me!

    Scottish Folk +Scottish Rock Beat = MacFabulous.



    Lyrics - Child Ballad 183:

    As I cam in by Fiddichside, on a May mornin
    I spied Willie MacIntosh an oor before the dawnin

    Turn again, turn again, turn again, I'se bid ye
    If ye burn Auchindoun, Huntly he will heid ye.

    Heid me or hang me, that shall never fear me
    I'll burn Auchindoun tho' the life leave me.

    As I cam in bi Fiddichside on a May mornin
    Auchindoun was in a bleeze, an hour before the dawning.

    Crawing, crawing, for a' your crouse crawin'
    Ye burnt yer crop an tint your wings an oor before the dawnin


    (Crowing, crowing, for all your bold crowing,
    Ye burned your crop and lost your wings an hour before the dawning.)
    ~ Mollie ~
    My fiddle my joy.
