Like Jeff Buckley gone bossa. Or an Afro-Brazilian Nick Drake.

Some spellbinding stuff on this album.

The album has a version of the song from that YouTube clip that's even better - it has an extraordinary string arrangement that kicks in at the end. It would go down a treat with Late Junction listeners, I reckon.

Not all the album manages to keep up the intensity. But it's still one of the most distinctive albums I've heard this year. It'll be reviewed in the next Songlines and I'm trying to arrange a quickie interview.
