KT TunstallLook, normally I’m not the kind of blogger who’s going to wax eloquent over whatever music I’m listening to lately, but I have to admit I was blown away by this clip of KT Tunstall performing “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” live on French television. She’s using a foot-operated sampling machine to create loops on the spot and build her own accompaniment and backup vocals.

“Tunstall,” Wikipedia says, “is known for her live performances in which she becomes a one-woman band.”

I’ve watched this several times and I never get tired of it. It did exactly what it was supposed to do: Sent me to Best Buy and made me buy her album.
