Diva Alphabet: A is for Annie
Annie's new album sampler
11-minutes of samples from Annie's new CD, Don't Stop. MuuMuse did a big post with all the "deets", which seem correct after hearing the songs.
Early comments: No wonder it took the pixie so long to complete this album, it's solid gold. Fortunately, the Stacey Q ripoff I Know Your Boyfriend Hates Me (which I hate), seems to be the worst song. What Do You Want (Breakfast Song), the second sample sounds, err, blistering. Sweet - obviously Xenomaniacal - has a lovely, apt chorus for its title. Bad Times reminds me, for some reason, of my beloved Rachel Stevens [ed: Rachel, I luv u, call me! xoxo]. Misery is an homage to 80's LA new wave like the great, slutty Berlin.
Update: I just noticed PopJustice did a post on this too.
