Agnes Obel
Late Night Tales

The latest night tale comes courtesy of haunting Danish folk-pop composer Agnes Obel. Her selections prove comparable with her own material - generally quiet, reflective and poetic. There’s Lee Hazlewood’s spoken-word narrative on ‘The Nights’, the pioneering Greek artist Lena Platonos’ spectacular examination of androgyny ‘Bloody Shadows from Afar’, a rendition of the much-loved Bulgarian women’s choir piece ‘Pilantze Pee’, Nina Simone and a great deal more.

Agnes Obel
Citizen Of Glass

Agnes Obel is quite talent: she’s got classical piano chops, a powerful voice, and a skill for folk-inflected songwriting. Of course, the important thing is that she brings it all together into a satisfying whole. Citizen Of Glass uses lots of strings and harpsichord, and occasionally performs the old Fever Ray trick of splitting and shifting Obel’s vocals so that she sounds both male and female. Out on Play It Again Sam.

Agnes Obel
Aventine / Philharmonics

Folk musician and vocalist Agnes Obel mastered the piano at an early age, and has since made two baroque pop masterpieces with it: the eerie 'Philharmonics', which sees piano glittering around her haunting vocal melodies and understated beats, and the neo-classical influenced 'Aventine'. These two sibling records are now being reissued in one package by Play It Again Sam.
