SoftSpot, Laura Jansen: Sunday UkeTube

Ever since the Blue Peter/Cookie scandel, I haven’t been able to hear the word ‘cookie’ without sniggering. It certainly makes the Cookie Monster about a million times more funnier. But Laura Jansen does such a good job of playing her Cookie Monster cover straight, I was quite moved by it.

But the most exciting video this week comes from Sarah Kinlaw. I’ve featured a few of her videos before but she hadn’t posted in a long time. It was worth the wait. She’s back with a friend. a cate band name (SoftSpot), a beautiful video and an incredible sound. There’s not a great deal of uke in, but enough for me to justify posting something this jaw-dropping.

Also this week Benny Chong and Byron Yasui duetting, a cover of an obscene Zappa song, an experimental ‘tone-poem’ from James Hill and plenty more.
