    Default Album Club, January 2018: Emiliana Torrini - "Fisherman's Woman"

    Happy New Year everyone. The Album Club choice for January comes courtesy of Rich (stairpost) with Emiliana Torrini's 'Fisherman's Woman'.

    As always, please listen to the album in its entirety before you vote and/or comment.

    Emiliana Torrini - Fisherman's Woman.

    The overwhelming appeal of this album to me is the quality and intimacy of the vocals, late at night, in the dark, the cliché of the artist being in the room has never felt so true. I can easily let myself be fooled into thinking that she is singing just for me. The lush vocals however do not come at the detriment of the music, the guitar lines are crisp and clean, nothing has been overdone, no complex multi-instrumental balancing act here, it's a shining example of less is more. That's not to say that this is a musically sparse album, there is plenty to keep you hooked, it's just done simply but effectively. Slow burning, but the fire is always flaming in the end.
    In all honesty there is probably more than a little sentimental attachment to this album, it was given to me by a friend that I spent many evenings with, sharing music and wine. I have since lost contact with her but this album never fails to put her back in the room with me.
    It's a superb body of work, but Nothing brings me down and Thinking out loud just shine through as favourites for me.
    I hope you enjoy it, I look forward to reading your thoughts.
