My sister, the formidable Elspeth, has started up a blog of her own, Nothing Compares To Elspeth. She’s come out of the blocks strongly, with posts featuring Jeff Buckley, Paul Kelly, Sigur Ros, Colin Hay and the wonderfully clever and irreverant Tim Minchin. She’s introduced me to a few bands like Fishhawk, Owl City and the Riverboat Gamblers. She’s also served up some Christmas tunes to get you in the mood for some festive cheer. Head on over and say hi!

I am a little surprised that this one hasn’t made an appearance yet though. What’s the go Elspeth?
