This week’s show has a strong leftfield and alternative feel to it. Some of the tracks are from albums released on small labels that we love: including Okraina Records, Folklore Tapes, Reverb Worship, Burst & Bloom, Cardinal Fuzz, North Western Recordings and Mega Dodo.
There is something older even than music at the heart of Cannell’s compositions. It is something inexplicable but profoundly beautiful, and it has resulted in another triumphant album.
Cannell’s weird and often eerie choice of instruments, her attention to historical and musical detail, and in particular her improvisational prowess give this remarkable and at times elemental album a personality of its own.
