Been thinking it’d be great if there were a female Nick Drake? Well, neither were we until we heard this beguiling set of rainy-day songs by Keren Ann. On her English-language debut, the 30-year-old Parisian — whose two French albums have won her beaucoup love overseas — sings with a quiet reticence reminiscent of the late troubadour. Laced with gorgeous string arrangements, Not Going Anywhere is truly an album to be savored by the light of a pink moon.
