I don't listen to many bands with female lead vocals. Why? Because I can't sing along as well. It is just that simple.
However, I would like to plug a great new act from Pittsburgh with some great female vox:
Some really great indie-folk, at times. On a few tracks, like "The Hourglass Waltz," the vocals wax a bit too much "Cranberries" for my tastes.
