With the new album Passport selling well heres the first 2 albums now at a new lower price. Passion play is a sensuous ten song musing upon the highs and lows of life: namely love, death, drugs, alcohol, sex, ambition and highwaymen. Katy conjures a magical world of cruising sexual predators, interstellar relationships, religious junkies and erotic vampires. Style wise passion play retains the alt-folk mood of debut album Screwing lies , whilst introducing electronic elements due to Katy s growing interest in the dance scene. The work of 4-hero, A guy called Gerald, Bjork and Micatone have been particcularly inspirational. The songs capture moments from forgotten times and places, making the everyday seem extraordinary and possess a quintessentially english character. Outstanding tracks include the Kruder & Dorfmeister influenced Paper castle featuring Olly Parfitt of the Herbaliser on wurlitzer, performance poet John Hegley as the infamous highwayman on Turpin , and Sharkesville with Calina Mare, violinist with the Tindersticks. Brass, double bass, cello and violin add depth and light to arrangements. The moog brings a touch of Jean-Jacques Perry retro feel to the dance-floor friendly Borderline . Passion play is peopled with a menagerie of hot-headed, cold-blooded and starry-eyed characters obsessed with fulfilling their desires. Not unlike the real world, but with a touch more magic. Katy Carr is committed to bringing trills and folk thrills into the 21st century.
