cards on the table - we've never really warmed to Joan Wasser's work, always feeling it lacked that little something extra - but now we're realising how big a mistake this might have been as 'Damned Devotion' is a sensationally dark, shape-shifting collection.

Every song here could serve as a single & each time you return to the album, it embeds itself in your brain just a little deeper until eventually you realise that her 5th solo effort has all the makings of a classic, career-defining album. It's certainly her rawest outing yet, exploring her more stripped back roots but there's a bewitching pop element running throughout that makes this a truly irresistible set. One for fans of Feist, Laura Marling, John Grant or Martha Wainwright. "a refreshed stew of Annette Peacock sorcery & Al Green sensuality....arresting" 4/5 - Mojo, "edgily lascivious" 4/5 - the guardian
