Cate Le Bon is an astonishing talent and it is rare these days to find someone making music unique to themselves. Listening to her music is so refreshing because it is so utterly out of step with the times and could fit in with almost any era of music from the late sixties onwards. She has a beautifully rich voice, reminiscent of Nico, but with more range and warmth. The arrangements of the songs also sound like the slower more melodic Velvet Underground tunes, but they are beautifully crafted and inventive, and reward repeated listens.
Put simply this is a wonderful and hugely talented artist. Buy this and then buy the sister record 'Cyrk' which has to be a contender for album of the year! Time to immerse yourself in the world of Cate Le Bon, a truly brilliant singer songwriter, you will not regret it, I assure you.
