Marry Waterson & David A. Jaycock
Death Had Quicker Wings Than Love
One Little Indian
this uniquely atmospheric, dark and haunting folk sound consists of vivid fingerpicking, modestly used, emphatic string accompaniment and marry’s own smoothly penetrating, ghostly vocals.
the album also features a plethora of notable instrumental collaborations with the likes of celebrated singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams, Romeo Stodart (The Magic Numbers), Emma Smith (The Elysian Quartet), John Parish (PJ Harvey). if you like Shirley collins, lal & mike waterson’s ‘bright phoebus’ (the former of which is marry's mother), or the spectral quality of nick drake, you must hear this. "gorgeous, compelling, subtly arranged folk fables" 8/10 - uncut.
