Now for some nice music from newcomer Kerry Devine. Away From Mountains is the singer-songwriter’s debut LP and it takes a great deal of inspiration from the atmospheres of the English Fens. Sometimes this makes for spare, beautiful folk music in the vein of Beth Orton and early John Martyn. At other points - the track ‘Work You’, for instance - it’s in more of a sort of Wuthering Heights/‘Wuthering Heights’ way.

Mountains! Singer-songwriters love them, oftentimes, but here’s Kerry Devine with her interestingly-named ‘Away From Mountains’ on (limited) vinyl LP *and* the great new format everyone’s talking about, the Compact Disc. I think Kerry’s from Britain (can we get a fact-check on that please, ed?) and we don’t have many mountains here anyhow, but hers is a voice as cool, clear and true as a mountain stream on a hazy day in July -- or perhaps Buxton Spring at any rate.

Devine’s delicate folk songs and folky pop-rock arrangements are sparse, spare and kind on the ear; she channels a route somewhere betwixt Beth Orton and Kate Bush yet with none of the fussy mannerisms of either musician. Her music has also been compared to Laura Marling and Daughter, but please don’t let that put you off. There are even electronic textures bolstering the dramatic, trip-hop(ish) ‘Work You’ and ‘Ariel’ -- on which Kerry calls to this reviewer’s mind the sweetness of (Lambie) Lou ‘Louise Lamb’ Rhodes. In other words, nowt but wistful beauty and shimmering elegance. Marvellous.
