Happy Music Monday! Because everyone needs more quirk in their life, let’s talk about Regina Spektor. Regina Spektor is an American singer-songwriter and pianist from Russia. Regina’s music is classified as indie folk/pop, but she was associated with the anti-folk movement in New York early in her career. Anti-folk mocks seriousness in most mainstream music and is meant to sound experimental. Regina’s association with this musical movement comes across in her incredibly quirky, and sometimes eerie, tunes.
She has released six albums over the last 11 years: 11:11, Songs, Soviet Kitsch, Begin to Hope, Far, and What We Saw from the Cheap Seats. #RealTalk, Regina Spektor’s music is really strange, but her originality and unique voice is what makes her so great. Her most popular song, “Fidelity,” became popular several years ago, and is her most recognizable song. Some of her songs are a little weird, but overall I really enjoy her music and creativity. Here are a few of my favorites by her. Have a great week, and thanks for reading
