Not really part of the music she listens to I guess, but years ago she expressed admiration for Morphine (she described their music as "sexy") and Babes in Toyland (she defined them "brilliant" live).

British singer PJ Harvey once described them as "one of the most sexy bands because it's just slide bass guitar, low baritone saxophone and drums."

I love them too and absolutely agree with Polly, sexy is the word

I forgot about Mark Linkous/Sparklehorse! "Eyepennies" is such a beautiful song.

Polly talking about Mark after his death. https://soundcloud.com/sus_ond/pj-harve ... arklehorse

When she's in the bus, on the 'Reeling' video, while driving through Manchester you can hear Bartok's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta playing in the background.

Which is pretty damn groovy.


Don't forget Porter Wagoner's "The Rubber Room"
