For lovers of St. Vincent & Tom Waits, as well as the Alan Lomax collections, I give you Cold Specks. Warm, vintage ‘doom soul’, as the songstress has dubbed it herself, that in this cold, cold weather feels extremely appropriate. A bit of Armatrading, a lot of blues & drama… She’s played on Jools, and is supporting St. Vincent on her Canadian tour. And anyone that starts her song with ‘Rotterdam, Goddamn’ has me sold.
Enjoy on this cold, crisp winter morning:
