Womyn's music and music by women

Read this post, heard the song, bought all three of the albums on itunes. Thanks, @AmandaPalmer

this song, “seven stone” is the boldest, most honest song about an eating disorder i’ve ever heard…wanted to share.

my housemate mali sastri is one of my favorite artists and fronts a band called Jaggery. her singing is out of this fucking world – she studied an esoteric form of singing called “voice movement therapy” in london (and now she teaches).

this is a clip i just stumbled upon…she joined the Theatre is Evil tour for the make-up australian dates and my band backed her up for this song and the australians LOVED her.

it helps to know, if you’re american and didn’t know, that brits weight themselves in “stones”, not pounds. seven stone is about 98 pounds, or 44 kilograms.

i’ve seen her play this song live about 50 times and i *still* get fucking goosebumps at 2:42. every time.

…………

SEVEN STONE.

i wish i had the bones to show

i’m on a mission ~ gonna get myself down to nothing
gonna disappear ~ slip down the drain ~ evaporate

how much more to go til i’m 7 stone

i’m on a mission ~ gonna get malnutritioned
kick myself into high gear ~ go go go go ~ keep keep control

how much more to go til i’m 7 stone

i’m on a mission ~ gonna get them to listen
the only way ~ i can communicate

how much more to go til i’m 7 stone

amenorrhea lanugo

i wish i had the bones to show
i would show what they didn’t know
and he said no ~ and he said no
and there’s a hole ~ i have a hole
in me there’s a hole ~ inside there’s a hole
and i can never fill up this hole

how much more to go til i’m 7 stone
how much more to go til i’m 7 stone
how much more to go til i’m 7 stone…..

………..

also find her on the internet, she’s here on FB and tweets (@singermali). if you ever have the chance….go see her live. she’s a *force.*

she’s headed out on tour this summer with her full band (jaggery – here;s a recent clip of them and HOLY FUCK MALI’S vocals on this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRF82MWLPno) and needs to fill in a few dates in a a few cities if you think you can help her find shows/house parties etc :::: and if you’re around these areas and have ideas – throw ’em her way via FB or whatever….she’s open.

west coast – follow along. she’s got a mailing list at http://www.jaggery.org/
