tin cup prophette
*this is exciting, you just can't tell because she doesn't capitalize her name*
When Amanda Kapousouz moved to NYC for fame and fortune, her father gave her a tin tip cup that still hangs from her fiddle case with a note that read, "Go make some money."
Why I Like It
- Tin is my favorite metal and who doesn't like prophets? Cups I'm a little finicky about, but 2/3 ain't bad and I hear there's a fiddle involved.
- I knew she used to play with Jump Little Children. I hated their 1998 record but still listen to it at least once a month. Running with people like that is usually a good sign.
- Amanda played at Smith's Olde Bar a whole bunch and I count that gem among my homeboy venues. Any friend of Smith's...
- The 2 songs I've heard are damn pleasing and interesting. They remind me of Andrew Bird, and I don't have to tell you how I feel about him.
