Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
English singer Elaine Palmer has made her second album and it’s a quiet gem. She plays a multitude of instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium and percussion. Members of Lamb help out on double bass, cello and drums.
It’s a quiet and introspective collection of songs but its very compelling music. Palmer never raises her voice but gets much said anyway.
“Terease” is a lovely song with shades of Beth Orton’s approach to music.
“Harbor of Refuge” is sweetly strummed and dreamy.
“Morning Love” is achingly beautiful, the strings underscoring the vocal.
This record’s the equivalent of the bright but shy girl at the back of the classroom. If you give her time and space she’ll tell you the most remarkable tales
