Best Picks: Drastic Fantanstic

KT Tunstall
Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall burst onto the public consciousness in 2004 with her gritty debut album ‘Eye to the Telescope’, a provocative sonic mesh of heartfelt pop, rootsy, electric blues, and left-field alt-rock. Eye spawned three hit singles — the Grammy-Award nominated “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” “Suddenly I See,” and “Other Side of the World” — all of which became omnipresent on radio, television, movies, and the Internet. Thanks to the multi-media exposure, ‘Eye’ is certified platinum in the U.S., with worldwide sales exceeding 3.5 million copies.

The follow-up, ‘Drastic Fantastic’, was released by Virgin Records on September 18th, 2007. It showcases the 31-year-old’s growth as both a songwriter and musician on songs like the thumping “Hold On,” the rollicking “Saving My Face,” the jazz-inflected “Someday Soon,” and the frisky pop gem “I Don’t Want You Now.” “I wanted to be braver,” Tunstall says of the album. “I wanted to push the musicality. You can’t let previous success scare you away from moving on.”
Well the world will turn if you're ready or not.
Oh, yes the world will turn if you're ready or not.
