Heartless: Dia Frampton Makes Kanye West Sound Good

Dia Frampton managed to achieve the unthinkable last night. She actually got me to like a Kanye West song.

Meg & Dia are one of my favourite bands. Currently Dia and her sister Meg have no record label, even though their latest album Cocoon was utterly fantastic when it was released a few months back. These girls are among the best songrwriters and composers in the world.

It is therefore a mixed blessing that Dia has to resort to a reality competition so the world can realise what I already know. The Voice is an Idol clone that is certainly not worth Dia's many talents, as proven by her stunning performance. Covering Heartless by Kanye West, Dia displayed the kind of artistry the most dream of. It is worth watching to see Dia churn out these kind of performances.

If you don't already like Meg and Dia this performance is the perfect reason to seek them out.
