Amalie Plays Glockenspiel In My Office

She sat on my window sill, we opened some wine (I may or may not have stolen) from Tony DiSanto's office, and she played us some songs. Usually, Amalie's band backs her up. But today it's just Amalie, her glocks and us... I love this song, it's called "I Feel Sick" (can you say, "Label bidding war?")   Another incredible original, "Housecat" (Lars Von Trier you have a movie in your head, set to this song) Here's "E-e-everytime" ...and Musicbox Then she grabbed a guitar -- the one we used when we shot "MTV Engine Room" last year -- and covered "Spider To A Fly" by the Stones...

Here's an example of a toy Glock, though it's not Amalie's. You can't really tell that it's hooked up to a MIDI, but it is:   Here's a rough video of Amalie so you can hear her voice:     Here she is with the kind of instrument Peter Kay wishes he had...
