I study people, technology, and the worlds they make

Charlotte Martin

Whatever you’re doing, stop it, and go listen to this Internet Archive concert by singer Charlotte Martin. Her version of the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” (mp3) is extraordinary.

Many of her other songs sound (in a good way) like Kate Bush or Tori Amos, but her straightforward delivery makes “Wild Horses” her own. As unexpected as Dar Williams’ blow-off-the-doors version of “Comfortably Numb.”

“Four Walls” is really terrific, too.

  1. This is KILLER! Exraordinary! Bravo! Thanx for this clip. is the I.A. site a free downloads live music site?

  2. It is. A repository of live music, open source audio, old
    out-of-copyright recordings… and every Grateful Dead show. Run by
    Brewster Kahle’s Internet Archive, which is… well… archiving the
    Internet.
