Phil's been singing the praises of this particular songstress lately after being won over by her recent John Parish-produced effort, but I'm struggling a little with her. Sure, there's that same bombast of PJ Harvey's Parish-produced stuff and some really cool-sounding multitracked vocals, but I'm not sure what she's bringing to the table that's particularly new. I guess she's the Polly Jean it's okay for people who like foxes to like. Jokes aside, though, this is a perfectly competent little piece of indie rock that you could imagine bothering the bottom end of the top 20 in the mid-'90s. Roots in folk, but with added bombast in the production and instrumentation. It's actually the B side that's interesting me more on this one, though - slow and skeletal drums and guitar backing full-throated vocal harmonies to invoke quite an affecting atmosphere, simultaneously warm and sinister. Even though the playing is slow it stays folky and never drifts into doomier territory, and there's some lovely twangy banjo joining in towards the end just to round things off. A choice cut indeed - If you're into her album then this single comes highly recommended.
