The song of where we are right now.... tired and emotional...... but still hopeful and connected to each other
Is there someone in your life that you don’t like ? And by *don't like* I mean that you mightn’t cross the road to put them out if they were on fire.....
Maybe they have wreaked some havoc in your life or that of your family...... maybe you have invested long hours in imagining the return-grief you might visit upon them ..........?
But would it be satisfying? Would it make you feel better? Or would it be the ultimate win for your foe ,that you manifested as they do.......? 2020
It’s the end of October, we do need a bit of luck..... and to believe that it’s possible to happen on some😊
Go mad , or go dance
An attempt at capturing the nature of passion......feelings with the power to either ignite a fever ....or shrivel everything to dust. Feelings that shift you to your bones while the world turns regardless . 2020
A seductive summer swooner
Her voice, throughout, could charm the very stars from the skies.
Colour Code, a drive-through 21st century North America where the nation’s original sin comes full circle, from the plantations to the projects, from Homeland Zion to Homeland Security, from turpentine camps to corporate prisons feeding the eternal war machine. Ostensibly it’s a lament for the fallen.
A skewed world where gated-estate starlets fall in love with their stalkers, this is an album of epic emotions rendered as perfect miniatures, tiny origami unicorns.

Sing is a subtle but powerful record, one that deals in the currencies of joy and doubt, magic and grief.
Over the span of ten meticulously crafted songs, Sing casts ethereal spells, oblivious to worldly babble. These are wise, measured and sometimes tender airs, sung by a woman at the peak of her creative powers, arranged, produced and played by a man at the height of his. These songs, we’ll wager, will soundtrack baptisms, revels, weddings and wakes. They might bury us yet.

A collection of Appalachian standards dressed in beautifully darned gowns,. Here are courtly
tunes, murder ballads, child ballads and death fugues. Always the listener is reminded that these mountain holler hymns were written as Irish and Scots morality tales, Elizabethan verse and Presbyterian psalmistry before the Puritans brought them to Plymouth Rock. Here's your soundtrack to Lesy's Wisconsin Death Trip or Miller's The
Crucible. A beauty.

Mutter is a collection of ghost songs, avant folk
songs, eerie fairytales and cinematic snapshots of bedraggled actresses walking barefoot on
Mulholland Drive. Above all, this music is haunted and haunting, an album of shadows and unreal light whose after-effects linger long in the mind. Mutter is a body of interwoven songs as complex and fragile as a spider’s web.

Gorgeously creaky 2005
A triumph of self determination that encompassed everything
from unadulterated rock and roll to left field Americana and the
kind of lyrical sensibly that suggested Lorca rewriting creepy
Eastern European fairy tales.

A collection of beautiful outakes from Mutter.
