The Unthanks “Mount The Air” –  LP
The lead single from this record didn’t exactly receive a glowing review from yours truly, but that doesn’t mean that redeeming features can’t be found within the full length record. The trickiest element to get your head around with this record is the somewhat medieval context of the lyrics. Mentions of maidens beneath willow trees yearning for a handsome man… Such imagery conjures an overly theatrical frame onto an otherwise outstandingly produced record. The string arrangements are genuinely magical and the whole spectrum of sound has a gorgeous velvety lushness, making it chocolate for the ears.
7/10, Out Feb 9th, Jimmy Volts
