9/10 Brian 13 March 2009
One of my favourite female voices of all time has glided heroically back into the frame. K records star Mirah - friend & collaborator of PW Eleverum from the Microphones, featuring on 3 tunes here - is a wonder to behold. On new album '(a)spera', her honeyed tones embrace atmospheric folk, experimental baroque pop & offbeat tropicalia, these slinky, magical tunes invoking the fantastical, loaded with cascading poetry concerning love & life. I've always found her a very spiritual & involving singer, her beautifully personal & sweetly rounded vocals not just loaded with delicate melancholia but hope & serenity too. I find Mirah on firm, confident territory here, in her 4th outing. A greatly comforting & mature record that's as progressive as it is playful without ever being remotely contrived. Take a step into her world, especially if Nina Nastasia, Bjork, Laura Veirs, Suzanne Vega or Bat For Lashes are a worthy distraction in your life. LP/CD in bloody lovely eco/sci-fi themed sleeve! Gotta be AOTW.. x Brian
