Russian-born New York-based singer-songwriter Regina Spektor debuted with two self-released albums, 11:11 (2001) and Songs (2002), that displayed her eccentric theatrical singing and her "antifolk" lyrics.
Tracks: Love Affair, Rejazz, Back Of A Truck, Buildings, Marry Ann, Flyin, Wasteside, Pavlov's Daughter, 2.99 Cent Blues, Braille, I Want To Sing, Sunshine.

Soviet Kitsch (Sire, 2004), containing Ghost of Corporate Future,
Tracks: Ode To Divorce, Poor Little Rich Boy, Carbon Monoxide, The Flowers, Us, Sailor Song, * * *, Your Honor, Ghost Of Corporate Future, Chemo Limo, Somedays.

She progressively turned more and more mainstream sound with plenty of keyboards and drum-machines on Begin To Hope (Sire, 2006), with On the Radio, and the stale Far (Sire, 2009), with Folding Chair and The Calculation. She tried to specialize in quirky pop-soul ballads on What We Saw from the Cheap Seats (2012), which would be an interesting genre in itself, but the quirkiness is too often trivial and her melodies somewhat frustrating. The format (and her classical-inspired piano playing) works well in slow-tempo meditations on love like Firewood and How.
