Start.Stop.Whisper.Pain.Jazz. (Music Review)

Released: Dec 2013 
Nina - Xiu Xiu C

As much as I like Xiu Xiu, I don't think this Nina Simone tribute works as a whole.  Previous to buying the album I read a review that said Jamie Stewart's voice fits the jazzy soundscapes, but I respectfully disagree.  There are nice moments here, like "See Line Woman" and "Pirate Jenny." However, Nina just makes me long for original Nina Simone recordings.
