Everything I've Got in My Pocket
Label: New Rounder
Yes, Minnie Driver can act, write songs and sing. Get over it. She sounds like an earthier Norah Jones or a wispier, less bent Neko Case. The title track is genuinely effervescent and lyrically intriguing; "Fast As You Can" is a smoky alt country anthem, and her take on Springsteen's "Hungry Heart" is worthwhile.
