The other evening I wanted to make a post about Regina Spektor's new album, and how I cannot wait for it; lo and behold - according to Pitchfork it is coming out in June! I am so unbelievably stoked; old favourites like Blue Lips, The Wallet, Genius Next Door and an entirely new song named The Calculation might just be on it.
Though however much I admire Russian-born-and-bred Regina, "Begin to Hope" (2006) disappointed me ever so slightly because it just didn't sound like what I had been listening to since the early 2000s, her sound was fleshed out with alien beats, bleeps and toys. New producers new times nevertheless. I think she has a point when she says that it is irrevocably her music.

PS: Go here for more videos, I adore the CBS Sunday Morning and Musikbyrån interviews, and the official video for "Us".
