A striking mix of radical and traditional, raw emotion and literate expression, hip-hop and vocal pop, Nellie McKay's Get Away from Me is the kind of feverishly inventive, sprawling album that only comes from young artists. Though it could've easily fit onto a single CD, it's a double-disc set designed to reclaim the feeling of flipping over a record; the back cover proclaims that McKay "is a proud member of PETA.

Being Nellie McKay must be exhausting. So many ideas, so many sounds, to cram into song; so much to say about men and politics and getting older (she's 19); so many years of popular music to celebrate, emulate, toy with and subvert. Her debut album is dizzying in its scope and ambition, fizzing with energy as McKay hurtles from one instrument to another, one genre to the next.

Summary: London-born, 19-year-old jazz vocalist Nellie McKay makes her debut with this 2-disc set produced by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick.

Genre(s): Pop, Jazz, Singer-Songwriter.

McKay is said to be the first woman to release a double album as her first release. Originally, her contract with Columbia called for 13 songs, but McKay aggressively lobbied.

Ding Dong," on the other hand, deals with depression in a surprisingly sprightly way, and the similarly witty "Clonie" turns human cloning into a story about self-obsession. Nellie McKay - David. Read full description. See details and exclusions. See all 2 brand new listings.
