Finally the vinyl of Sarah Blackwood’s record “Wait It Out – Vol. 1” has arrived, # 241 out of 500 copies. The cover is amazing.. you can actually feel the different layers of paint. You can see how Sarah created these here.
Wait It Out
The title track of Sarah’s newest album & a great tune.
Released in November 2011 Drowning marks a rather melancholic and dark song on the record. Sad & beautiful at the same time.
I like the guitar on this one. Helps to lift the mood a little despite the rather sad lyrics.
I’m sure by now most of you have seen the Walk Off The Earth-Video of the Song Somebody That I Used to Know.. quite a performance. If you’re not one of the 36’940’306 views (as of January 25, 2012) of this video, here it is:

Browsing a little further I found some kick-ass videos from a band called The Creepshow. As it turns out, Sarah “Sin” Blackwood (the girl in the video) plays guitar and sings in this band. She took over as her sister got pregnant in 2009.
Here’s the titletrack of their 2010 release They All Fall Down:
Just a couple of weeks ago, on January 6th, 2012, Sarah released a new song of her’s called Wait It Out. A beautiful and easy-listening song. Not quite what I expected after listening to The Creepshow over and over again, but very good nevertheless.
Finally, I’d like to post another video from her, where you can see that the creative process reaches further than “just” creating good music:
And in case you’re wondering how you can get your hands on one of these vinyls, watch this. Ms. Blackwood herself explains:
