Informal Review: Anna Calvi

Anna Calvi-S/T
On paper, it seems like it can’t miss: a Mary Margaret O’Hara sound-a-like with a Nick Cave endorsement and guitar runs lifted straight from the jukebox at the Double R Diner in Twin Peaks.  And it’s not bad, at least not for awhile, but I can’t seem to get as excited as I should be.  It’s all rather sleepy with a long parade of 5-minute plus songs.  I’ll watch where she goes from here – and it might be fun to see her open for Grinderman – but I’ve forgotten much of this record already … and I listened to it at least 5 times.
Favs: “Desire.”
