The 10 Gallon Liberal

Friday Listening

Two musicians I've recently heard for the first time: Bambi Lee Savage and Anna Calvi. They are similar in some ways, offering moody, expansive songs with heavy guitar presence. Calvi sports about as huge a Telecaster plus Vox AC30 tone as you're likely to find, a spectacularly tasty collaboration of string and vacuum tubes. She's also got an unusually confident playing style--she's unafraid of silence, and she alternates it with full-on assaults of sound. Sounds easy until you try it...
