Cheap Demo Bad Science by Serafina Steer

9/10 Mingus 05 July 2007
And the other hand, Serafina Steer's "Cheap Demo Bad Science" (Static Caravan) starts out with a version of Brian Eno's "By This River" and despite endless comparisons in the office (mainly from head honcho Mr Phil) to Joanna Newsom, our Serafina is nowhere near as challenging in the voice department, although she does play harp and sings in the folk vernacular. And what a beautiful voice, rounded with range, a breathy undertow and a childlike playfulness (not like Ms Newsom). Although containing a melancholic strain, there's a hint of humor especially in the basis of the overheard conversation that informs "Council Flat" on track nine. Eleven tracks good including an animated featurette by Sam Steer of track three; "Tiger", traces of agit-prop and some fine observational pieces on the personal and the political. Any other week this would probably be album of the week. There's life left yet in the so-called folk revival. Come and break some hearts in Leeds.
