Anya Marina
-Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II-

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri

Anya Marina has toiled as an actress, a successful San Diego DJ and other professions all while trying to further a career in music. Her break came with the inclusion of her track "Move You (SSSPII)" in an episode of the hit television show Grey's Anatomy. That track and eleven more are featured on Marina's third release Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II. Channeling her inner Liz Phair/Kim Deal persona she wrote or co-wrote all but one track here while also handling guitar and vocals. With whispery soft vocals Marina comes across as lascivious and bratty at once. An interesting combination to say the least. Keepers here include "All The Same To Me", "Afterparty at Jimmy's", "Cowboys" and the Antonio Carlos Jobim penned "Waters of March (Aguas de Marco)". Two other outstanding cuts are "Drop Dead Blues" and "High on the Ceiling" both produced by Britt Daniels of Spoon. Go to www.anyamarina.com for more information.
