I'm secure enough with my sexuality at this point to admit it is the best album released in the last three years or so. She's energetic, tormented, sensual, wonderful, ahhhh it's so fucking great I don't know what to do with myself. She's like Norah Jones meets Ella Fitzgerald, with a bit of Allanis Morissete but she's more talented all of them (accept Ella). Anyone else heard this new, beautiful British sardonic pop/jazz queen?

Common, people. Are you all a bunch of musically oblivious morons? I expect heaps of excited replies comming from likeminded listeners.

I'm gonna stick my nuts on the chopping block here and admit I've never heard of her.

She's pretty obscure actually. But dl some of her songs, they're amazing.

Did I mention that I played alongside of her at the Sidewalk Cafe in the village last year?

Teagan and Sarah are kinda weak - they lack passion and finness.

If that was a factor in what music I listened to, Hillary Duff would be on my playlist right now. Plus, Nellie's not too bad looking herself.

I tend to shy away from solo artists, particularly females. But I heard the new Neko Case album's really good!

I fucking love Nellie McKay. My #1 favorite album of the year.

Tegan and Sara's album is really good, Neko Case's is better. But Nellie's beats them all.

Also, she's not British, though she sometimes pretends to be. God I would go so gay for her.

She's British?


Nellie McKay has managed to make a damn fine album and I want to make babies with her. I'm listening to it as I pound the occasional shot of Popov and "rip it" energy drink and writing the worst paper of my life about the rise of morality and religion in politics over the past three decades. I do think that it's a tad overrated though - just a tad - largely because of her unique sound... along with the bonus points she gets for being young, attractive and intense.

Nellie's British - or at least by citizenship. She was born and raised in London, although I have no idea what her background is.

She's also much better then any of the other artists mentioned in this thread.

Now that I've mentioned myself, that is no longer true.

She has a tremendous amount of American political (I'm skeptical about cultural references, as we export so much of it) references in her lyrics, including Bush, Janet Reno and the late Senator Wellstone. I'd be surprised to learn that she's just a dirty foreigner...

*swings by nelliemckay.com*

"She continues to reside in her native Harlem."

Strange, I simultainiously misread "Harlem" as several things, including some imaginary place starting with H that I made myself think was in England, and Harem.

She was raised in the United States but born in London. She moved here when she was to.

Trust me, I'm a huge fan of hers, as well as an aquaintance of hers.

OK, so she's technically British but we can still claim her? That's fine.

Would you have the faintest idea why Get Away From Me is a double CD? Combined, they total around 61 minutes and, if memory serves, the top number of music a CD can hold is something like 74 minutes. I'd assume people wouldn't press a double CD unless they had to.

Tell her I said "hi".
