Hey, Who Really Cares by Linda Perhacs

One of the main reasons that we formed Moist Melodies was to showcase bands that we love, that we feel are not getting enough attention. Everyone has an artist or two who are totally unknown, but whom  we think make fantastic music. There are the well-established good bands of the time, and there are also unknown nuggets waiting to be discovered. This is the case now as much as it was in the 1970's, when Linda Perhacs released her first and only studio album, Parallelograms. It was unappreciated at the time, but has come back to prominence after some of her music was featured in a Daft Punk movie. You can't help but be reminded of the similar story of the rediscovery of Rodriguez's music (which has been featured here).

Anyway, she sings in a Joan Baez-esque style, but with a focus on a quieter, more reflective sound. She occasionally breaks into a more rambunctious style, but its hard to top the beautiful soft voice in "Hey, Who Really Cares," which is off of Parallelograms, released 1970. Listen after the break.

Sounds Like: Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Rodriguez
