In Brief


Keren Ann
Metro Blue

Keren Ann is a languorous Parisian chanteuse with a throaty soprano that promises untold pleasures for as long as she likes you. "Lay Your Head Down" even hints she may like you tomorrow, with a nice tune to back it up. One thing, though, mon chou -- over here, we say, "Miss you like hell." "As hell" just doesn't sound right.
