New York, NY: Soul Bricklayer

Originally uploaded by MeganFromTheLastTownChorus

I’m leaning against a wall in the West Village, agog whilst watching New Orleans-via-Sweden’s Theresa Andersson single-handedly build three minute soul music monuments, one syncopated, sung, or strummed track atop the other until they’ve all conspired to form a blissful blur of spirited New Orleans-y dream pop something or other. Pop gospel perfection. A voice way blacker and bigger than a diminutive Swede has a right to have. I’m inspired, and hope we do manage to collaborate. She’ll be at Bowery Ballroom in September. Her album’s out in a week or so.
