That new Tracey Thorn album is rather good isn't it.
I will always have a soft spot for Tracey because of the sheer brilliance of the Marine Girls, "distant shore" and "Eden" alone, but this new set of songs is the best she's done in ages (I dreaded it would be a bit to coffee table/dancey for my taste after hearing the single, but I was wrong).
I especially like the less dancey songs ("hands up to the ceiling" is a personal favourite with it's reminiscing about listening to Siouxsie and Edwyn, aah, wonderful) although her version of the Arthur Russel song is brilliant too.
