Anna Calvi “Blackout”

09/05/2011

This song first caught my attention because I thought it was Chrissie Hynde, and as a lifelong Pretender’s fan, I don’t say that lightly.

Calvi’s flippantly cool, I-won’t-wallow-in-my-pain, track is reminiscent of one of my favorite Pretender’s songs, “Don’t Get Me Wrong.” Brian Eno referred to her as “the best thing since Patti Smith.”

Comparison’s aside, the music is still fresh, new and interesting.
