oh yeah! from the reflective & sombre lament of the opener, to the fabulous desert blues triptych & the matthew e white 'spacebomb'-esque sumptuous arrangements, this is an unhurried, spectacularly colourful & highly distinctive follow-up to our no5 album of 2013.

it's an enthralling & illuminating leap forward from the Tennessee-bred, Brooklyn based songwriter who weaves electric blues, African rhythms, cosmic atmospherics & delicate soul into an inventive whole. The collection’s finely sketched character studies brim with richness & detail while June’s ethereal, wide-open soundscapes provide a sterling backdrop for her remarkable Southern gospel & nasal / honey voice. Norah Jones adds her distinctive vocals to 3 tracks & 'Shake Down' sparkles with background vocal contributions from her father, Emerson Hockett & brothers, Patrick & Jason Hockett.
