    So I went to the show 6 days ago and wanted to share the story, some pics and videos WOT ahead. I was so happy when they added a show in Sweden. As you all can imagine... I dragged my now husband along. He has come with me once before for a Reggie concert, but the long wait was kinder then because it was summer. We arrived super early. Super. Ridiculously. But hey. If you're going to another city to see the best artist, musician and one of the top people in the world you might as well go all in. So we did. We were there at one. The doors would open at five. We thought. Turned out that it was seven. As we waited it got colder and colder. We actually went to buy some blankets to wrap around us. The people who walked by us thought we were homeless. But that's an interesting experience in its own. The next people who came and stayed in line with us arrived at four. They were four first-timers. Really fun to be able to tell them all about her concerts and songs and stuff! A very nice security guard let us in at like 5:30 and promised us we'd be first in line and would be able to hang our coats without falling back. So from then on everything was great She was a bit late out on stage, and I think she played like 90 minutes. People were so slow at filling their seats... They dropped in like 40 minutes after it was supposed to start. We had fun watching the stage crew set up reggie's water bottles and mugs and towels. They must've been out like 3-4 times each fixing the placing of things a cm at a time. I saw a guitar amplifier and realised we would be hearing You've Got Time (Jack wasn't there, it was someone else playing). She finally came out on stage and she was dressed up as a cat! Can you imagine? You haven't seen her in 3 years and expect a certain thing and out comes a cat-Regina. It was awesome though. The whole show was filled with jokes about her tail and ears. She was so talkative! And she had her eyes open more than she used to. Especially during the Trapper verses. It was so cool. I've known all of her little gestures and faces and sounds when playing the old songs. But I didn't have that information with the new songs. It was like watching someone totally new at some points. She looked up at the cieling, looked down with a thoughtful face at the keys (have a photo of that), did things with her feet and so on... So it was a very special show. I spent most of it just listening and watching. Didn't photograph that much either. It was a real treat hearing old songs like SECG and Sailor Song too. Like visiting old friends. She has kept the moves for SECG. And Better was a nice surprise. The audience clapped really well too. We kept the tempo for a very long time. I have never heard the ending that long. She really dragged it out, improvising singing while we clapped. So much fun... The highlights for me were Small Bill$, Sellers of Flowers, The Trapper and the Furrier, Obsolete (which was SO beautiful. I think it might be the song where she sings the prettiest. Not pretty as in boring. Pretty as in long clean notes and a lot of feeling)... And Après Moi. I had somehow forgotten about the song. It didn't occur to me that she might play it. It was marvellous. It was perfect. Some people I talked to afterwards said the same thing. Oh, how I would have liked to have it recorded...but maybe it's better that I don't. I wanna remember the feeling of that performance as it was. It was obvious he was having so much fun during this show! She was more vibrant than I have ever seen her. At one point I told her (I was right in front of her, and the audience was quiet) that we were having such a great time and she responded that she was too and I feel like she really connected to the audience. She was so open and honest and we all just loved being there. She also seemed very connected to her band. She and Yoed looked into eachothers' eyes during both the NMQP interludes. She seemed to joke with Brad when he forgot to start the same song. Laughed with Mattias when they didn't manage to start at the exact same beat... As you might have already seen on the brümstix facebook group she had some things to say about Karlsson på taket - a fictional character by Astrid Lindgren. That she - like all Russians - loved him and that she always tried to get some Karlson stuff when she was in Sweden, but that she couldn't find it anywhere. And she was asking us if anyone had any connections so that we could lift the copyright. It was very funny. But I actually don't think that there's something going on with the copyright. I just think he isn't that popular so that it's too expensive for the stores to get stuff in stock. I read someone had told her it was expensive in an interview I will be posting in that thread. It also says she wanted to buy the stuff for her son, which I had already guessed Some anecdotes: When she stood up to go to the mic for SB she was like "Aaah, she walks", because everyone clapped. "She's not just over there... Oh, and she's got a tail. Life is so much harder with a tail. Or well... I guess if you have a tail you're used to it and it isn't that hard...". When talking about Karlsson she asked to dim the lights and was like "Let's always play shows in the dark. I'm a cat anyway. You know what a cat looks like." She forgot the words for Us. She made the second line "and later say it's all our fault" and got lost. So we helped her quote the correct line and she was like "okok, then what?" and we ended up quoting the whole verse. She asked us to sing along, and when we did she shouted smiling "That helps a lot!" (Ah, she was so FUNNY!) After playing the intro to Samson (the last song) shew said: "Maybe I should take my ears of for this one..." Like this was the only serious song and then: "Without them I think I look like a mouse..." Afterwards only my husband and I waited by the back door. We still had to stand behind a security fence. The guards didn't want to answer if she had left, and I understood they weren't allowed. The bus was still there. And then she came out after we had only waited for 10 minutes! I had been so relaxed until then. Like it was just Regina. I have met her three times before. I had some irrational feeling of wanting to tell her how I had been, that I got married and is studying medicine now. But then I realised we hadn't met in 6 years, that she had no idea who I was and that I hadn't thought about what to say. I went all Poussey meets Judy King. She was walking towards us and all I could do was wave. And when she came up to us I rambled something about what a great show. The first thing she did was offer us fruit. Said they had plenty. So I had some Regina tour-fruit while my husband dug out the playlist we had gotten for her to sign. We got two pictures with a horrible flash. She joked about us being in jail like Karlsson because you could see the fence in the picture. I told her we had met before, and that the first time was in the same spot after the "polite Swedish psychic"-thing. And she remembered. That made me feel cool. At least she knows she's got a Swedish fan that's been with her since then. Then she said she needed to get back to the bus because of the cold. Probably didn't want to get ill. I asked her for a hug, she said of course, and then she was gone. And we alked off. Me questioning everything I had said, wishing I would have let her known how much her music has meant to me and how much it has shaped me. And congratulated her on the baby. --- The setlist is listed below. Links to youtube videos. The thing is they had told us that we absolutely were not allowed to tape. And to my face since I was in the front. They were really on about it. Like "If you take a photo - make it quick and then bring the camera down. Otherwise it might look like you're filming". So most of it is recorded from between me and my husbands elbows and sometimes I point the camera at different directions. And I didn't record much. Small Bill$ and The Trapper and the Furrier are really worth watching though. Cut the very low and very high frequiencies on your speakers...I will need to buy a new camera with a better mic for next time.

    It's true! Regina said this in an interview recently and I feel like it captures how a lot of people digest her music, and music in general, perfectly: “To me it’s a very breathing, living thing that someone invites into their house, kind of like a pet, and they can interact with the record when they’re in different moods, or different times of their lives. Maybe for months they can skip over one song as soon as it starts – something about it just annoys them – and then one day, when the time is right, that song just becomes the exact thing they need, and all of a sudden they’re like, ‘Wow, I never used to like this and now I love it.’ Another song they used to really like, maybe they never ever want to hear it again, you know; ‘I’ve taken all the nutrients from it and it’s got nothing left for me.’ I like that. That’s what music is to me, it’s almost like food – like a supplement or something. ”

    I saw Regina in Edinburgh this week after what seemed like forever since I saw her last. The show was great as always, but especially noteworthy was her recital of The New Colossus to start the show. This was in response to there being 'a new asshole in The White House' who had dismissed the poem and its imortance as it was only added to the Statue of Liberty later. Obviously as an immigrant to New York it means a lot to Regina and her speech beforehand, and the recital itself was very moving. I wish I could have recorded it but the venue had a very strict no photo/video policy. (The show that followed was amazing too, and it was fun to see the guitar back!)

    So I got to see Regina last Saturday! She came to the festival Way Out West in Gothenburg, Sweden. I was so completely unprepared for this concert. Had just come home from a vacation and had to repack to go away again. Forgot both camera and ear plugs. And additionally I had lost my phone on the vacation… So the pictures and videos I have are mostly taken by my husband on his phone. And there are not many because it was raining pretty hard … BUT I befriended two concert goers standing next to me and they agreed to send their photos and videos, so we’ll see. One of them were Russian and the other a Jewish New Yorker. What are the odds? Well… probabaly higher at a Regina concert than elsewhere now that I think about it… This was the first time I was not in the first row at a Reggie concert. I was in the second behind the New Yorker who was this short wonderful person that didn’t block my view at all (although she couldn’t see anything herself for the first three songs when the press took their photos ). Regina was (as always) enchanting, graceful and mesmerizingly good musically. The setlist was very approachable. It felt very suitable for a festival. Mostly upbeat, better known songs. It’s amazing how she can almost fill an entire show with only hits now. I was very happy to hear Tornadoland again (probably my favorite on RUTL), The Calculation was a welcome returner as well as Eet, That Time and Bobbin’ for Apples. I was surprised that she didn’t play On the Radio or Bleeding heart, but I can’t say I missed them terribly. She had a new cellist. She didn’t introduce the band, so I didn’t catch his name. But he was very… passionate. Hehe. Had a few funny expressions and was very vivid in his movements etc. He forgot how to play Blue Lips though. During the second verse he looked at the sheets, at the piano, back at the sheets, to Brady and so on while playing a few uncertain notes. But he did a good job otherwise! Courageous to bring an acoustic cello in that weather. Some anecdotes: She improvised a great deal at the end of Better this time too! I have a bit of it on video. High pitch ”juicy” x 3 on That Time. Before Ballad of a Politician she referred to the White House and said that the Statue of Liberty stood before them and will stand after them. It was very moving and brought down huge applause. During the outro of Small Bill$ she imitated a a wild animal, like scaring the crowd and then backing off looking hesitant. I thought of a bear because of the lyrics. During Ne Me Quitte Pas she added how she loved Göteborg in the rain (with a really good accent with a rolling R!). You guys. Samson this time. I have never ever sung along to that song. I sing it a lot by myself but I wouldn’t want to bother Regina or the people around me if they’re having a moment. I just think it’s too delicate. Haha. No one in the crowd agreed with me. Everyone sang along. Regina exclaimed ”You sing beautifully!” after the first verse. And then again after one more bit ”You’re gonna make me cry!”. So then I sang along. With Regina and everyone else. It was wonderful. At the end she actually sounded and looked like she was going to cry, she looked very moved. After she said ”You broke me heart! In the best possible way”. And she didn’t seem like she wanted to leave the stage. Many thank yous and blowing kisses plus an air hug. It was a wonderful concert. It could’ve felt impersonal because of the setlist and the setting, but it was an experience I wouldn’t have wanted to miss. I’m so glad I went. I’ll probably just post the videos in the facebook group, since they’re not good enough to put on youtube. Or maybe I'll find out how to attach them here...

    i know many were disappointed in Live On Soundstage, and nothing has been released about the removal of the record on itunes. I purchased the physical dvd cd bundle so i could get it a week early, and i was so exited. Regina always delivers, and given that it was her first time performing these songs live, i admire the album. anyway for those of you who are still looking for live Remember Us To Life, i put together her KEXP preformance, as a live album. listen on my soundcloud below. to download the album visit www.regismemory.weebly.com check out my other stuff on the site too!

    It is very hard to pick one song from each album (I think it would be easier to pick 1 song to cut from each album) but here it goes: 11:11 - Buildings Songs - Ne me quitte pas Soviet Kitsch - Ode to Divorce Begin to Hope - On the Radio (this one is sooo hard, it is a 12 way tie for first!) Far - Folding Chair (another almost impossible choice.) Live in London - Silly Eye Color Generalizations (had to add this one in because I love it so much) Cheap Seats - Firewood (also not easy.) Remember Us to Life - Older and Taller (so far, can't wait to hear more...)

    I really like Older and Taller Is anyone else getting a bit of an 'Only Son' vibe from this one? Hard for me to explain why but for example when she sings "and that's all you need to know", that's something I can imagine Jack singing as well with that melody.

    She played what felt like the entire album at the Chicago show. The songs are absolutely stellar. I mean, I knew I was going to be taken with new Spektor, but these songs really floored me, to the point of tears at some points. Also, one of the major highlights was a song that featured her beat-boxing. I can't wait to be able to hear it again. I had certain lyrics stuck in my head all day.

    So for anyone who ordered the "clear vinyl"- were your records actually clear? The label on the shrink wrap said "Clear Vinyl" but when I pulled the records they were the normal black vinyls. Am I losing my mind or was I supposed to get something else? I did contact Warner about it.

    I'm so happy and thankful for the new album. It's such a new experience to have all new songs, I'm overwhelmed by it in the best way It feels like Regina handed us this huge gift.. and I'm unwrapping it veeeery slowly, taking time to let each song sink in, so I've only listened to it up to Tornadoland so far. But I couldn't wait to leave a message to say that I'm enjoying it so much! The album is reaffirming Regina's amazing range in terms of moods and styles, and I really like what she has done production-wise (although I wish Black and White were a bit less polished, and Older and Taller feels a bit too end-credits-of-a-movie to me). Before the album came out I was already obsessed with Small Bill$, and I really love the lyrics of Older and Taller.. And each of the other new songs I've heard since Friday bring their own flavour to them <3 Grand Hotel has amazing imagery, it reminds me of A Canon which is one of my favorite songs of hers. The Light is beautifully vulnerable. The Trapper and the Furrier is such a surprise, wow, she's still writing songs like this! Yay! And then Tornadoland.. I love the stormy sounds and how her voice seems to be so 'close' to your ears. Now I have 6 more songs to discover.. It's great to have her back.

    I've been listening to Regina since Fidelity and after What We Saw From The Cheap Seats was my least favourite album (though I do like it, just the least of all of her albums), I think this one may actually be my most favourite (although it is hard to pick favs haha). I can't stop listening to this and just about every song speaks to me on some level. I don't know. I guess I love how she's added a bit more mainstream-vibe yet still has that giant Regi twist which we all love so much. I don't know. I can't really give a very indepth analysis at the moment because the album is making me feel so many things!

    not to be persnickity... because i don't think she (camille) is much of a comparison to regina....BUT my friends and i have been talking and here's the similarities we've drawn! music via camille and music via regina 1.) breakdown of words/ seperation of syllables phrase: casque---tte bi---ke song:'Janine 1' 'Just Like The Movies' 2.) unusual use of instruments bangs on chast bangs on stool like king kong with stick 'Au Port' 'Poor Little Rich Boy' 3.) intense lyrics 'Pale Septembre' 'Blue Lips' 4.) improve noises with mouth 'Janine 3' 'All the Row Boats' 5.) Speak-sing style in certain songs 'Janine 1,2,3' 'One-String Blues' 6.) songs with repeatative phrasing 'Janine 1,2,3' 'That Time' 7.) mimicking objects noises carousel broken record 'Vertige' 'Dance Athem of the 80's' *i am only utilizing the 'Le Fil' album of camille so there are may repeating songs on this list, and i am very familiar with regina's music so i had more songs of hers to work with. this was a fun little list... but i suppose you can compare any two artists... i just think maybe the simmilarities help me to gradually come of my 6 month regina fix.. frequent relapsing comforts me to know i will never be bored with regina!
