Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THERESA ANDERSSON

Hummingbird, Go!

2008-10-31

Born and raised on the Swedish island of Gotland, Theresa Andersson now calls New Orleans her home. This album was recorded in her kitchen and she often uses "found" instruments from her kitchen cupboards. The xylophone sound on "The Waltz" is actually soda bottles filled with varying levels of water. She also makes unconventional use of conventional instruments. Consider that the slide guitar sound in "Hi-Low" is actually a violin. All this adds up to a quirky indie-girl-pop sound that is both interesting and accessible. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
