Single Review – Regina Spektor – Small Bill$

The classically trained Muscovite has another single for her upcoming album Remember Us To Life and ‘Small Bill$’ is an enigmatic and fusing track and reflects the greater fluctuations in Spektor’s style more generally. With this track she features the rumbling strings and dramatic piano chords that are a common feature of her work, but these are fused with shuffling percussion and a tuneful rap of sorts. The track is more direct and obtuse than the previous single and for the most part works well as a concept, whilst not so well gelled together in others. An intriguing if not successful addition.
