This post serves two purposes.

1: Drawing your attention to my ‘Cool Pics’ page – look up!

2: Drawing your attention to ‘Look Up’, by Toni Collette and The Finish.

toni.jpgThe actor-turned-recording-artist is a well trodden path, but I reckon Toni Collette does a pretty good job with her 2006 debut album Beautiful Awkward Pictures. Her band includes her husband Dave Galafassi, who plays drums, and Augie March lead singer Glenn Richards, who plays guitar. Collette wrote all the lyrics and the band took care of the arrangements.

‘Look Up’, the second single from the album, is my favourite. I really like how you can tell instantly who is singing – it’s definitely Toni Collette. With all the digital manipulation available these days, many artists sound alike, making it difficult at times to identify just exactly whose vocals are whose.

You can check out more tracks by Toni Collette and The Finish at their website or their myspace.
