Regina Spektor played last night in a circus tent in Hyde park. I was asked the other day what her music was like. I can never describe music.

I came up with: singer-songwriter, famous 4 years ago, Russian New Yorker.

It was the equivalent of saying I went to a play and there were words and actors.
I should have said that she is a storyteller with her grand piano and accompanying cello. Her music invites you into a Hansel and Gretal Wonderbread house with tales of Samson and Delilah. If it has been a while since Hotel Song, Us and Fidelity then I suggest a re-listen.
