DOWNLOAD: Anna Calvi - Wolf Like Me (TVOTR cover) (MP3)

Anna Calvi

"It's been a breakout year for Anna Calvi -- one spent shuttling around the festival circuit in support of her Mercury Prize-nominated debut -- and the singer sounds positively exhausted.
When pressed during an early-afternoon telephone interview, the U.K. chanteuse admits she's conducting the chat while still in bed.
Understandable, perhaps, given the year she's had. But while Calvi says she spent only one month out of the past 12 at home in her London flat, she isn't yearning for a break. Immediately after finishing yet another upcoming tour, she plans to begin work on her sophomore record this March." [Winnipeg Free Press]
Anna Calvi's version of TV on the Radio's "Wolf Like Me" is out on iTunes TODAY, but you can also download it above and stream it below. Maybe the guys from TVOTR will be in the crowd to check out Anna at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn TONIGHT (12/13). Eleanor Friedberger and New Moods open the BV Holiday Party show. Some $8 tickets are still on sale!

It's too bad, really. Her cover sounds fucking great ... and then she starts singing. If you listen to the music component of this, it's lovely and distorted in all the right ways. I just find her voice really quite weak and it's then very noticable that she can't, vocally speaking, hold a flame to the original.

Mind you, I wouldn't mind knockin' dirty boots with her.

I think she needs more makeup.

Am I right?

@10:22 Dead on. Her voice just a thin nothing compared to the rest of the track and the original.

Just call the Mercury Lounge in a few hours, they'll confirm it for you.

@10:51am, no. no, you are not right. you fucking ass. and @11:03am, thank you. i really did enjoy listening to the musical pieces of this cover, but sadly, her thin voice ruins it for me. perhaps, and it's just my guess, if she had a steady diet of billyburgers, she might be able to get herself a set of balls, so to speak, and really kick this cover to the moon.

Music is cool, but her singing does ruin it

Looks like a Robert Palmer video model

"take off your clothes it's the only thing people care about from you."

That's gotta be the weakest bv comment I have ever read. If you're gonna insult someone, especially someone with talent, at least be a little more creative.Get some sleep and then try again

I would put the tip in.

show last night was amazing!

Anna Calvi > Laura Marling

While both are immensely talented guitarists, and singers, whose stage presence demanded rapt silence from the crowd, props go to Calvi who actually played a long set w Encore and only charged $8 to boot.

Marling should pay attention b/c thats how you do it.
