AllMusic Review by

A stop-gap release between 2013's One Breath and her third full-length studio album, 2014's more than servicable Strange Weather EP rounds up five covers, all of which are delivered with the usual impeccable taste and gothic flair that have become Calvi's trademarks since her debut in 2011. Recorded in New York with Doveman (aka Thomas Bartlett), Strange Weather includes evocative renditions of songs by FKA Twigs ("Papi Pacify"), David Bowie ("Lady Grinning Soul"), Suicide ("Ghost Rider"), Connan Mockasin ("I’m the Man That Will Find You"), and Keren Ann ("Strange Weather"), the latter two of which feature guest vocals from ex-Talking Head and serial collaborator David Byrne.
