Simple, intelligent, dramatic music composed and delivered with perishing wit. For fans of Elvis Costello, Nick Cave, Pulp, the Smiths and Tindersticks. Or, to quote the press:

"Spielerfrau is the brainchild of the Soviet émigré, former television-news anchor, journalist, and singer-songwriter Michael Idov. The trio has a sound that mixes heartfelt rock with intelligent lyrics full of Eastern European black humor and irony." -- New Yorker

"Few are as wry and dry as Spielerfrau... tinkling new-wavey synths and clean, angry guitars -- still minimal and chilly, with oodles of Ost-European flair -- form a hammer-and-sickle machine behind Soviet émigré Michael Idov and his streamlined Bauhausian delivery." -- New York Press

"Spielerfrau's dark pop has whiffs of Tom Waits and Balkan music, but the band gives the tunes a vaguely detached, goth edge that brings it all together unexpectedly well" -- Time Out New York
