SPIN is crushing hard on London singer-songwriter Anna Calvi -- and we're not alone. Her brooding and sexy self-titled debut wooed Brian Eno and Nick Cave, who invited her on tour, and scored a nomination for the U.K.'s prestigious Mercury Prize. Recently, Calvi rocked our NYC office rooftop. Watch video of her performance below!

The guitar-playing singer led two supporting musicians in a 45-minute set -- part of the SPINhouse L!VE concert series, presented by Lacoste L!VE. The tracks she performed from Anna Calvi "nodded to flamenco, surf-rock, and orchestral ballads suggestive of Scott Walker," we wrote in our review, including gems "I'll Be Your Man," "Rider to the Sea," "Suzanne and I," "Surrender," and "Love Won't Be Leaving," which you can watch below.
