She is definitely one of the women walking upon the earth who could legitimately be classified as a living goddess of music. Her career has spanned, what, twenty years? And she’s producing music now which sounds completely different from anything else she’s done yet also seems like a natural progression from her past albums. Her music seems influenced not only from blues and rock and roll but also from all these different noises from around the world, tribal music perhaps? Hymns also seem to work their way into Let England Shake to me as well, just as they did with White Chalk. Also, her lyrics are as thought provoking as as poignant as ever, the protest songs such as “The words that maketh murder” give off different images and ideas in your head off how gruesome the government can be, yet also carry a tune that makes you want to shake your derriere.
In summary: She’s very talented and I love her. I’d be more coherent but I’m hungry.
