Minnie Disc

minnie me

Just days after I mentioned her performance in Big Night ("And Minnie Driver looks great") I find out that Minnie has her first CD coming out next month. From the four full-song samples that I listened to at her website, she's not bad. Apparently she was close to signing a record contract before her big movie debut. I agree with the Guardian's Alexis Petridis who wrote that she sounds like an alt-county Dido. Her backing band is made up of members of Pete Yorn's band and the Wallflowers, two bands I'm not exactly fond of, but I didn't hear anything like those bands in her samples. I'll reserve my judgment until I hear more, especially her cover of Springsteen's Hungry Heart.

hmm, not convinced--I thought her performance was very dull!
