I knew nothing of this woman before today, and I only found her through David Byrnes Playlist. Inititally, her voice sounds not so impressive, and the songs seem overly simplistic. I kept listening, and realized that hers is a controlled singing with such subtle intensity it left me stunned. So far, I'm liking "My name is Trouble", and "Blood on my hands." My absolute favorite is "Strange Weather". a breakup song like no other. It has a strange surreal quality to the images she references, "cutting white lines in black matter", "cutting silver in strange weather." I had this CD on while doing things around the house, and it was the one song that made me stop everything and hit replay about 5 times.
I didn't realize what a following she had until I checked out her website. She has been around for awhile, and she writes and producers her own stuff.
