New Regina Spektor Single: “Small Town Moon”—Listen

I might as well come out with it: Regina Spektor is one of my all-time favorite artists. It’s more than just the way she blends her classical training with indie-pop and folk; it’s her whole style of songwriting and performing—she’s catchy, deep, snarky and funny all at once. I don’t know many female singer/songwriters (including me) who wouldn’t like to be her–no one else sounds quite like she does.

Like so many millions of fans, I’ve been waiting anxiously for the new release, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, Spektor’s first album in 3 years, which is finally set to drop at the end of this month. She’s been teasing us with singles from the album in the meantime, including “All the Rowboats” and “Don’t Leave Me.” The third teaser single, “Small Town Moon,” was recently made available to stream.

I love the way this song progresses, from the basic piano/vocal she’s known for, to this little jazzy-pop vibe, and then breaking into a full funky type of jam. All the kind of stuff that makes us love Regina Spektor. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.

Meanwhile, take a listen to “Small Town Moon” here.

She soon found her own voice as a singer-songwriter, and eventually began playing her own gigs in the coffee shops. Her personal influences include Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, Ingrid Michaelson and Cat Power, but as an indie musician herself, she has an affinity for any band or artist who pursues creative freedom on the outskirts of the music industry. As our Indie correspondent, Kim makes a point of highlighting up-and-coming independent acts who are creating a buzz and building an audience. When she's not blogging for us or playing in the coffee shops, Kim works as a barista herself to help pay the bills. She currently lives in Seattle, Washington.
