Anyone else been listening to this unusual and unique Toronto talent? Haunting stuff, perhaps too dark for some.

Hey, I like dark and she has an interesting voice but... I think she fancies herself a female Leonard Cohen. Unfortunately I don't feel that her singing is all that evocative or emotionally involving. Similarly I don't find the song writing or the arrangements to be all that engaging.

Just listened and you are correct. Uninteresting and a little derivative...

Yeah, the vocal fry and 'lo-fi' instrumentation is just not appealing to me. What I find funny is that on her wikipedia page her influences are listed and Leonard is NOT mentioned. The other thing I find funny is that her latest album is called "Exciting Times", though the music is anything but exciting, and I am not sure the irony, even though she IS Russian-Canadian, was intended :P
