I stumbled across an older entry on Regina Spektor from two years ago and here we are again. All good things come again and again, right?
Although sporting some of the more eccentric sounds of Tori Amos or Ethel Merman, Ms. Spektor keeps things smart. Good lyrics, clever arrangements and better music than you’re probably listening to right now. Go thank the Russians.
I’m especially liking the twinkling intro on “20 Years of Snow” and the stop-action work by Adria Petty on the video for “Us.” Yep, she’s Tom Petty’s daughter!
