Cool alt-folk song with great vocals that remind me of late 60s singer Melanie. Has a a kinda natural strangeness of vibe and distinctness which Psychfolk loves..I really dig how it opens up and suddenly becomes more friendly when the electric comes in...
STEVE ISONS IAC DIARY....
11.1.08........I've just been listening in the bath and thought this has to be added to the IAC diary..Its funny..I heard this song initially sufing-looked at the page and saw it was #16 or something on THe Big 50 here and was genuinelly shocked-as what makes the IAC Big 50 9 times out of 10 and my taste are usually diametrically opposed....So much atmosphere and sense of strangeness with just an acoustic,a voice and some beautifully subtle and well placed electric touches...There's a real sense of freedom here that refuses to be tied down and trapped by typical pop structure.Its beauty n magic has just grown and grown on me with every play..Wonderful track..
