Regina Spektor Live in L.A. — A Free 30 Minute Set with Songs from Her New Album

Regi­na Spek­tor’s sixth stu­dio album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, is out. That means we’re hear­ing a lot more from the singer-song­writer whose music took form in the East Vil­lage of New York City. Sev­er­al weeks back, Spek­tor gave a thought­ful inter­view on NPR’s Fresh Air, where, among oth­er things, she recalled the dis­crim­i­na­tion her fam­i­ly faced in the Sovi­et Union and her child­hood immi­gra­tion to the Unit­ed States. Now, we’re catch­ing up with her in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia — at Apogee’s Berke­ley St. Stu­dios in L.A., to be pre­cise — where Spek­tor played an inti­mate con­cert fea­tur­ing songs from the new album. Catch one song, “The Par­ty,” right above, and the com­plete 30-minute ses­sion here. If you have a decent inter­net con­nec­tion, I’d skip to the HD ver­sion and enjoy. Kudos to KCRW for mak­ing this avail­able.
