I vote for Emily Haines (from Metric). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NExkkCNnomo // http://vimeo.com/41274237
Followed by Shirley Manson (from Garbage), Alison Goldfrapp (from Goldfrapp), Toni Halliday (from Curve) and Sarah Barthel (Phantogram). You?
kim deal (breeders) or kim deal (amps)
let's have a ball
love it so much... that bridge <3
those other ones
Nina Persson (Cardigans)
Harriet Wheeler (Sundays)
She sounds like a bored Scottish child.
She's not much of a looker but damn her voice gives me the horn.
Toni Halliday too from Curve.
Ann Wilson (Heart) has a sexy vocal.
To me it's Jenny Lewis. Just everything about that woman, including her voice. Especially when she swears.
'And would you fuck me? Cos I'd fuck me.'
But especially the heavy-breathing bit at about 3.07
Chan Marshall ?!!
Anyone mentioning Joanna Newsom gets reported to the police.
That middle 8 of Heads Will Roll is pretty sexy.
Originally I wanted to add her to my list from the first post but I thought the list is already too long.
The "crying crying crying woah-oh" bit in Zero gives me goosebumps too.
She's like a visitation from a higher state of being, but I wouldn't exactly say sexy. You wouldn't fuck a shaft of sunlight
other two pretty spot-on
so much this.
Thread over, surely?
Although this is the sexiest performance I've ever seen:
I'm getting in a state watching it again.
I just have to pop away from my desk. I may be some time.
but yeah ... her
Shit music but good lord her voice doesn't 'arf give me the fackin' horn.
but her voice is another matter entirely. Heard her interviewed on XFM years ago and her speaking voice is even sexier.
inb4 'your mum'.
and then go 'oh, nevermind' in response to what I thought would be an inevitable first reply.
Occasionally, Kim Gordon (esp. on 'The Sprawl')
fucking love that song
And yeah, she's pretty urgent on that one...
Giant Drag, talks dirty too for added sexiness.
Others have already been mentioned)

and the best of all when i fall in love....when she sings the word heart, i crumble http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrXnXkDioS0&feature=BFa&list=AL94UKMTqg-9CiaW1nI8f-_IvyL0fB9VKb
speficially in this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hapufz1NFkY
like 6 different singers in nouvelle vague?
when i saw them in 2005 they had 2
Definitely one of the sexiest
particularly when that Scottish brogue comes through
no idea what she's saying sometimes...but it sounds sexy. She could make a slaughterhouse sound sexy.
Good topic so far
Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit)
no other votes for Mariah?
it's just the best.
She may have a big range but she has no soul whatsoever in her voice. As a result I don't think there is anything remotely sexy about Mariah's voice.
but that my friend is a solid argument,
theres a lot of 'emotion' in her voice but I spoze it's subjective. rawness =/= more emotion or more authenticity, people with amazing pipes can convey emotion too, even those that are prone to vocal histrionics
i mean cmon, she has a song exclaiming YOUUUUU GOT ME FEELIN EEEEEEMOOOOOOTIONS
Mariah to the fullest, Im not really a Mariah stan. But she has some great songs and obv has a great (albeit polarizing) voice.
I hate oversingers, but Mariah manages to be technically astonishing whilst maintaining genuine charm, and yeah, so much sexiness.
I mean, she hasn't always put it to best use, and has done some crap songs, but at her best, she's PURE SEX.
that verse she does on Young Folks does stuff to me
...now of Taken By Trees. new LP out shortly i believe. lovely.
Esp. on "Rill Rill", "You Lost Me" and "End of the Line".
sexy wee lisp
...and nothing! It should not take a girl to make this suggestion.
about highlighting something nice/positive about someone deceased, I certainly didn't mean any disrespect and hope none was taken. R.I.P indeed.
But I think Martha Wainwright's a bit smoking too.
apparently anything goes.
Listen to Throbbing Gristle's "Hot on the Heels of Love". Steamin'.
by a million miles, Siouxsie.
Youngsters, read: you, who don't know Siouxsie's sexual power are really missing out...
Cat Power, Stevie Nicks, Neko Case, and Annie Lennox are in the conversation somewhere.
& Beth has an amazing voice, but sexy is the last word I'd use to describe it. An ex-girlfriend of mine used to like to play "Dummy" during sex (rather than play dummy during sex - that was my ex-wife) and it is most definitely not a sex record I can tell you.
finding Beth Gibbons' singing voice sexy is like finding Björk in 'Dancer in the Dark' sexy.
Especially on this...
when she was being all dirty and damaged and that.
As does Emiliana Torrini.
Good shout. "Unemployed in Summertime"? I'd keep you busy love.
^ didn't think much of this when I bought it seven years ago. it has made an indelible mark on me since. her best.
something about mystic lost broken bruised breathy wasteland mystics.
it's kelis innit
