Ana Egge, Lazy Days: * * * American idle

There have been concept albums about sensorily deprived children, the adventures of the singers’ grandmother, and even one about a man composing a concept album, but North Dakota singer Egge might well be the first with a tribute to indolence. However, a lot of care and effort was clearly devoted to these covers of Belle & Sebastian’s Summer Wastin’, The Kinks’ Sitting in the Midday Sun, Ron Sexsmith’s Wastin’ Time and more. Egge draws unsuspected depths from most tracks and pulls off the difficult feat of making a Sandy Denny song her own. — Ken Barnes
