Lovetune For Vacuum by Soap&Skin

Soap&Skin’s Lovetune For Vacuum came out in 2009, but this particular Norman Records™ writer is typing up its description a decade later. As such, listening to Soap&Skin’s debut LP has been as much of a chance to muse on the changing musical winds of the past ten years as it has been an exercise in music journalism. You really don’t hear much stuff like it anymore, but I can distinctly recall a time when this Regina Spektor/Dresden Dolls/PJ Harvey-type thing was very much the order of the day. The only things here that aren’t quite as time-stamped are glitching techno cuts like ‘DDMMYYYY’. While the style is a bit dated now, you really can’t fault the songwriting. Indeed, the piano balladry here is a few notches above the Adeles and Olafur Arnaldses we’re having to deal with at the moment. More power to Soap&Skin!

10/10 Alex

At times this record is truly beautiful. I had the pleasure of seeing her live knowing nothing of her music. The set she played blew me away.If you are a fan of hauntingly beautiful voices, pianos and 'other bits' I would encourage you to give this a listen.
