Product Description

Isabel Monteiro has a story to tell you. It s about passion and pain; rock-bottom and redemption. It s as compelling as it is self-confessedly hubristic, and perhaps more importantly, it s gratifyingly entertaining and moving.If you ask the internet the right question, you ll find that have been, ahem, kind of a big deal in their time. They toured with Jeff Buckley, who liked them so much he took to covering their debut single Alive go to is.gd/buckleydrugstore to hear him do so. They toured with Radiohead, whose singer liked them so much he sang a cello-laden duet with Isabel, which reached the UK Top 20 go to is.gd/radioheaddrugstore to hear it. Had anyone actually thought about it, Drugstore would have undoubtedly been branded Alt.country as is the case today. Isabel s smoky vocals and pitch-dark lyrical subject matter, coupled with her new band s minimalist, melancholic guitar and string arrangements, stick them firmly in the lovelorn, caustic company of Low, Dusty in Memphis and Leonard Cohen.After three albums on three labels, Drugstore went their separate ways in 2002, and in Isabel s own words, things spiralled down into seven undeniably gloomy years. The singer survived, perhaps in spite of herself, on wine and hope. Love for life kept me alive, she says now, until September 2009, when a briefly reunited original band played a gig at Dingwalls in London, just for fun . It sold out. This made a lot of people Isabel included realise that far from being stuck in any era, Drugstore s music nimbly hopped over the ages, from 1920s Berlin cabaret through the French chanson tradition, via The Velvet Underground s woozy melodic charm and Tom Waits bar-room badinage, across PJ Harvey s earnest intellect and The Bad Seeds rumbling, angry sadness. The singer felt emboldened and, inspired by a guitar donated by a fan, work started on material for the album Anatomy. In 2010 she played a sold out show at London s ICA. Ever the benevolent dictator It was true then, it s still true now. You ve gotta have someone leading the boat downwards... Isabel held open auditions for Drugstore at legendary London bar The Troubadour, and all the while she wrote the liberating Anatomy blog (isabelmonteiro1.blogspot.com) that would eventually inspire their new album s title and lyrical content. My blog is part of the band, she explains. Anatomy is about exposing yourself to the core, whether it s pretty or ugly. I think it s both: an analytical inspection of a state of mind."So now we have a freshly stocked Drugstore new cowboys , Isabel calls them - convening at a remote studio on Platt s Eyot an island on the River Thames near Richmond there they created Anatomy s 12 stripped-and-whipped tracks together. It s painfully intimate, shamelessly simple, devastatingly sad, says a disarmingly candid Isabel. And right in the middle of this f****ed-up seascape, the twisted heart of our little Drugstore still beats pretty.

Yes it is really good. Is it as good as White Magic for lovers? probably not. It would be very hard to top that album though and if you like Drugstore you will like this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Americana ballads led by quietly powerful female vocals 5 Oct. 2011
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On their 4th album since 1995, this London band is again led by the beautifully captivating, smoky
vocals of Brazilian singer Isabel Monteiro. Her voice is imbued with a sense of world-weary
resignation, but carries an undeniable splinter of hope in its naturally melancholic pathos. These
are quietly powerful Southwestern Americana ballads of love, heartbreak and acceptance.
Recalls Hope Sandoval, Sarabeth Tucek, Kendra Smith, Mojave 3, Cowboy Junkies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish they were more popular 8 Dec. 2013
By Irene Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
According to the liner notes Isabel Monteiro went from touring the world, to being homeless, to writing this album on a guitar donated by a fan. She recorded this album with a new band in 3 weeks in a cheap studio. The result is some of the most gorgeous and depressing music you could hope to hear. My favorite tracks are: "Lights Out", "Can't Stop Me Now", "Standing Still", and "Blackholes and Broken Hearts".
5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Stop Her Now 22 July 2016

Isabel Monteiro has killer vocals and is a poet-singer-songwriter bringing to mind Leonard Cohen and Patti Smith, only a little funnier.
