Two weeks ago we taped Lia Ices playing "Many Moons," from her upcoming album Necima for us. We posted the video then (and it's above, again) and now we have the mp3 from the performance to offer you. The album version of "Many Moons" is swathed in low cello but here—solo—Ices' voice is lithe, not shaky but with a tentative confidence. "You should go out and I'll stay in," she says. We don't think she means that. Mild sadness leads to artistic power. It's a pretty song.
