Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

British singer Storm Gordon’s debut album is a delightful trip hop influenced collection of songs.

Her voice is as light as feather but still makes an impression. There is an affinity with bands like Lamb and Potishead.

The song “Moonrope” has Gordon sounding like a jazz singer while the beats are buzzing like bees. “The Healing” circles Gordon’s vocals round in a Cocteau Twins like fashion while the backing is more soulful. “Forbidden Fruit” is hauntingly sensual and has a faint touch of Bjork.s latest work.

“Songs for Birdman” is a very pleasant and mature album.
