I don't think anyones heard her. The review I read said a cooler tori amos. To me, that says she plays piano and sings like Rilo Kiley and im all set with that.

well actually she does some pretty crazy things with the piano. i wouldn't really compare her to tori amos(that i've heard) other than saying that they are all great female artists, but i'm not that good at describing.

i tried to find a link without success but try to listen.. it's well worth it in my opinion.....

Her songs don't like they're that difficult to play but i can only play like one song so i don't know very much but her song 'Lacrimosa' sounds like it could be challenging. it sounds a little faster.

Ok im sampling this because I couldn't find your suggestion. This to me is Bjork with piano. Where as Bjork uses whatever cracked out instrument she can find, Specktor seems to steal her vocal signitures and play sap ballads. Im sorry, but im still not a fan.
