Serafina Steer

And so I can start again on more normal posts

My current favorite music is the Serafina Steer CD The Moths are Real, especially the tracks Disco Compilation and Night Before Mutiny.  Of course I have only heard these because of Stuart Maconie's freak shows on BBC 6 Music - constant listening for me at the moment.

I am particularly taken with how life-affirming the track Disco Compilation is, with its message of the redemptive power of music to cure all ills.  To make it right, tonight, tonight . . . . as she says

Night before Mutiny has some of the most complex vocal phrasing I have heard on a track for years - truly great
