Compare and Contrast Anna Calvi and Bauhaus

Just watched/listened to this plum piece on the Guardian by Anna Calvi. Hadn't heard her sing before or play guitar, but she's fascinating. Great voice, and I like what she's up to on the guitar, especially mixing up bass and lead lines.

Then I saw this video for "Love Won't Be Leav­ing".

Which, once she gets going on that guitar, made me think of this, naturally.

Whatcha think? Her MySpace page suggests she plays "Tango," which I can sorta hear, but her sound is way more complex. Though she has the passion, that's for sure. And the look.
