I'm looking for slowish songs with a good beat and female vocals. Here are a few examples of what I mean:

Sidsel Endresen & Bugge Wesseltoft - Try


Martina Topley-Bird - Sandpaper kisses


Other songs/bands that come to mind:
Mazzy Star - Fade into you
Portishead

A friend has already recommended I check these out:
Zero 7 - In The Waiting Line
Lovage - Stroker Ace
Portishead - Mysterons
Handsome Boy Modeling School - The Truth

So, Chit Chat, what songs do you have for me?

Have you ever used Pandora? You create a "channel" based on an artist or group, and it serves up similar songs.

Try it--I've had pretty good luck discovering new music using the service.

Oh yeah. I tried that once a few years ago and then forgot all about it.

Sundays are a little more upbeat but the lead singer has a pretty good voice.

And one of my Favorites Patty Griffin, and she is dating Robert Plant and lives here in Austin.

Can't listen to this song without getting somber.

Thx for reminding me: my cassette of "Tidal" by Fiona Apple broke some time ago and I need to get a replacement CD.

Does it have to be new music?

Because if not, Natalie Merchant has you covered.

Upon watching your videos, I was totally going to suggest Portishead and Mazzy Star - but I see you did list them. (Generally, their albums are good throughout, so you don't need to be picky about the songs, just pick up the whole albums!)

Somebody else you may want to consider - Cowboy Junkies



...and some Aimee Mann?

Mazzy Star does not have a "good beat" so I can only assume you are completey off your rocker so on a few tangents allow me to suggest:

Alison Krauss
Mary Chapin Carpenter
The Civil Wars (wonderful duo harmony vocals)
Gillian Welch
Tori Amos
Ani DiFranco (check out Living in Clip in particular)


ps - I think an entire thread of metal animal videos would be gnarly.

Make sure you know where your dog is before you listen to this one.


And check out Havana and Bangkok by Brother Sun Sister Moon. Those are my favorites on the disc the Great Game.
