The instrumentation kept it extremely interesting; every song had a different sonic palette. She played “Down by the Water” on lap harp with a foot synth as backup, used a metronome on “The Devil” and harmonica on “White Chalk.”
When she picked up a drumstick for the cymbal crashes in “My Beautiful Leah” it was charming. The highlight was her “Lick my legs, I’m on fire” at the end of “Rid of Me” – one of many songs that received a standing ovation.
Harvey had all eating out of the palm of her hand – just her, by herself.
