Bic Runga, the New Zealand singer/songwriter, is a powerhouse. Not only does she have a gifted knack for crafting timeless, infectious,tuneful melodies that I, but she also sounds unbelievably amazing live. No matter whether she's backed up by an orchestra, simply strums on her acoustic guitar, or do her finger-dancing on a piano, she always successfully reinterpretes her songs for the audience. Yeah, I'm a big fan. For those who haven't heard of her, I strongly recommend you to get to know her through these live tracks first, just to get an idea of how great her music really is. Of course, it all may sound biased since I'm like a cult follower of Bicrungaism (okay, that makes no sense). But just try them out, really nice, collector-worthy stuff here.Enjoy.
