I have been utterly obsessed with these songs since I first heard them about a year ago.
I sort of thought it would fit in some sort of imaginary brain pile of folksy under-produced songs, that seems pretty nice when you hear them for being innocuous enough, but just wouldnt rate over time.
And honestly I don't even why it captures so much of my mind







They have the same sort of romanticism of Rodriguez' unrealised potential...
Or maybe a half-decent female singer songwriter is just such a rarity she really stands out.
(Doesn't she?)

Interesting trio of songs here. I think each one improves on the previous one. I like them and will certainly check out a few more of her tracks.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I downloaded How Sad, How Lovely a couple of years ago. I think the songs are a little too on the twee side for me, she makes Vashti Bunyan sound like Diamanda Galas, but there's definitely something there.
