Top Customer Reviews
This is her first EP released in the UK and demonstrates her incredible range - from the fierce title track to the beautiful and smoky closer, How Soon. I can't recommend her music highly enough. Pick this up as a taster for her first full-length album, coming early next year.
Here's what the Sunday Times said about BMFA: 'You know that song that comes along once in a blue moon and takes your breath, and steals your heart, away? Well, this is that song. No blue editing pencil has been wielded over its lyric, and long before Wainwright blasts out the chorus with her husky, emotion-shredding voice, you are left in no doubt that she means what she's singing. "You say my time here has been some sort of joke," she rasps about her move to
New York and the time she's taken to come to the boil, "Some sort of incubating period/For when I really come around." The second time she hits the bridge, she rushes the words as the backing of acoustic guitar and upright bass struggles to keep up. The effect is thrilling.'
Like many I kind of stumbled on this American 5-track EP CD single around the time of its release (on Zoe 021 432 007-2) and I've been quietly in love with it since 2005. Stylistically its part k.d. Lang - part Shawn Colvin - part Rosanna Cash - part Beth Orton - a wonderful set of songs. "B.M.F.A", "I Will Internalize", "When The Day Is Short" and "It's Over" are originals with "How Soon" being a cover of a 1947 Jack Owens classic ballad (lyrics above)...
Strange, moving and gorgeous...pick it up soon...
