Bildergebnis für anna calvi

Probably the greatest, cleverest and most erotic album was released by Anna Calvi a few weeks ago. Calvi's first album was a word-heavy statement in indie music. I missed her second album where she made some experiments in eclectic sounds she is now back and better than before. Hunter is still more concentrated and has got in the good sense more roughly than his predecessor's work. She stands for a dark archaic sound in the tradition of The Bad Seeds with hooks, rhythms and intelligent lyrics. And after all she likes to destroy her songs by heavy guitars. All in all one of those records that will be on the shortlist for 2018.

Some excellent stuff on this record for sure, though there are also a few things I'm not sure about. She goes all X-Factor with her vocals on 'Don't Take The Girl Out Of My Boy' to the point where it sounds like an old advert for women's sanitary products... But where everything clicks, its brilliant.
