ANNA CALVI, YOAV and CULTS

Caught a couple of amazing musicians live over the last few days.

What can I say about ANNA CALVI?

WOWZER.

That’s about the best I can do without getting far too intimate about my true feelings! What a woman, what a song-writer, most of all what an amazing performer. As I may have said before ‘Desire’ really stands out for me.

The second act really getting me going over the last few days was YOAV (although for some reason didn’t seem to find him quite as hot as Anna). What an incredible and innovative performer, a modern one-man band but much cooler than that sounds. Creating all his sounds from either his voice or guitar then going loop crazy.. check his pedal set-up!

His old stuff was sounding amazing but of course we don’t do old here (put Yoav in the Brand Nu search feature and you’ll find past recs) so I’d say of the new stuff ‘We All Are Dancing’ and ‘Little Black Box’ are the stand outs, particularly as LBB has a sample that sounds like Casualty!

My final pic from the weekend I haven’t yet had the chance to catch live but I know when I do they’ll be amazing, the music of CULTS just exudes such great energy on the record, live I can’t even imagine. Been loving ‘Go Outside’ for ages, now I’m falling for ‘The Curse’ too.
