You know, I wasn’t very impressed by the studio versions of the songs she was streaming off of her Tom Waits cover album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, but these live sessions are actually pretty cool. You’ve got to give her credit for pulling this off live. No AutoTune, right? Obviously not, ha ha.
Maybe I’m just being tricked by her cool, distant, Nico-esque stage presence, or maybe it’s the adorable tank top, but I’m kind of digging these videos. I like the fact that her voice is far from perfect. If she had a traditionally good voice, this would just seem like another celebrity vanity project. This is something much weirder.
It’s ScarJo Day on Glorious Noise! Also see today’s Friday Facial review of the album.
