No details yet, but Rae Morris is about to release her 2nd album. ICA Tickets on sale tomorrow, 10am.

I saw her on Tue at the Boileroom, Guildford & her new songs played for the first time were fabulous. Some Bjork influenced songs & unexpected arrangements played by a tight knit band were really impressive. The maturity of Rae's songwriting made me feel like she'd skipped a decade from her debut album. I hope the album 'Production' hasn't changed the sounds that much from what I heard the other night.

 

Heard quite a bit of the new album Denis.

I hope my comment's about 'Production' have had a deft hand, Ewen. I've spoken a couple of times now with, Andy Gangadeen (Rae's musical director), and he has as much admiration as I do for Rae's wonderful talent. I'll be attending the ICA gig with a fellow, Thumpermonkey fan  That's how broad her appeal is across the ages  

Covers album.

Heard most of it already.

 

Richard Thompson's second set of his best known numbers with just his Lowden acoustic and his voice, with a set of "rarities" with no track listing yet known for the rarities. Great songwriter, great guitarist, I've preordered vinyl and CD editions.
