Basia Bulat – Free MP3 of “Go On”
Basia Bulat played a great show at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle on Sunday. I’d first read about Basia when Peter Blackstock wrote a long feature on her in the first ND bookazine and had been curious to see her live. She played a great set of what I would best describe as English folk with a modern twist, by way of Canada (Basia is from Toronto).
I was pleasantly surprised by the opening act Ivan & Alyosha. I had never heard of them and though I only caught the second half of the set their melodic pop held my attention and I grew to like them more with each song. I went to the merch table after the show to find out where they were from and it turns out they are from Seattle. How it is that I’d never heard of them I’m not sure, but happy to have another local band to follow.
