Some early Linda Smith stuff, apparently.

Nice, thanks! Already found a copy of her Preferences comp on Harriet used as a starting point.

2 weeks pass...

...and I'm listening to said Harriet comp and damn good stuff it is so thanks to dlp/curmudgeon/Evan for the prompt. Sad that she's not more famous.

i have 'joyride' but haven't listened to it in years and years

this mid-90s IDM track she sings on is pretty lovely:

Okay so Linda Smith's cover of "In Love" is one of the most majestic, beautiful things I've ever heard. That is all.

I think Linda's just quietly living in Baltimore and is not that musically active. Lida's been quiet lately too, but she's recording a new cd.

1 year passes...

She got a big shoutout on Sound Opinions this week. I'd never heard of her, but they played a song that was to my ears a dead ringer for Liz Phair. She even had that same kind of tuneless voice.

i randomly thought about Lida Husik recently and looked to see if she'd put anything out lately -- apparently the only thing she's released since 1999 was a 2006 digital single, guess she's out of the game.

and a 2008 guest appearance on a record by something called 'Uberzone'

SoCal electronic performer. That's a flashback to see his name again!

x-post
Her website says she was gonna record an album in 2010 but I guess that never happened.

Had Joyride and My Bag long ago. Used to spin Joyride a lot. Never heard her later stuff. Great voice.

People are still posting on her facebook fan page, but there's no mention of new gigs or an album anymore
