Scarlett Johansson: Rhapsody Originals (EP)
Released: Jun 2008
Scarlett Johansson has yet to play a superhero on film, but off-screen she's beginning to resemble a caped crusader who fights the dark forces of cynicism. Eyebrows arched and eyeballs rolled when it was announced that the Woody Allen muse was to record an album of Tom Waits covers. But, with the help of TV On the Radio guitarist Dave Sitek's lush shoegazer-goes-carnival production, Johansson used her evocative, deep voice to silence the doubters. On this playful sounding Rhapsody Originals live recording, ScarJo runs through "Green Grass" and "Anywhere I Lay My Head."
