Keren Ann

Nolita

2005-03-10

The Israeli-born chanteuse is back.
She’s assembled her signature Old World sound with haunting trumpet, violin, and some modern-day special effects that result in introspective music that seems to convey emotion through Keren Ann’s delicate phrasing.

Nolita was issued last year on a French pressing but has hit our library and American outlets at just the right time; the dim fading of winter - that slice of intermediary grey between bitter cold and hopeful spring - is a perfect time to listen to this.

This is her second album where she sings some in English and you won't want to miss the stunning if understated title song which ends in a beautiful breath cadence.
