Harvey did everything in 2006 except release new material, dropping her first DVD and a compilation of her Peel Sessions. 2004's Uh Huh Her was more a critical success than commercial, so the indie princess is surely keen to recapture the zeitgeist (in a non-Smashing Pumpkins way, of course) with Chalk. She enlisted Flood behind the boards and Dirty Three handyman Jim White behind the drums for this 11 song suite. As always, the illumindienati is pumped.
