Anna Tivel “Worthless” – Listen

Anna Tivel’s new album ‘The Question’ is out on April 19th on Portland’s Fluff & Gravy Records, and it’ll feature her trademark ability to paint vivid pictures with just a few words.  ‘Worthless‘ takes on that old saw “sticks and stones may break my bones” and says, you know what – hate-filled words can hurt, hamper and maim.  “I never did wrong / I never did gamble / until the day you called me worthless” suggests a damaged ego, but as the song expands there’s a suggestion that something heavier, much heavier, than “just” self-destructive tendencies is going down.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
