I fortunately have no idea what Phish sounds like, but I do think this sounds like the best of her last two albums.

Actually it feels like a merger between her earliest work and her recent stuff, stripping away the overt Krautrock-isms. It's solid but I prefer her incredible run that starts with "The Silver Globe" and ends with the amazing Fenella LP.

highlights on first listen are the title track and "solarised"

ufo, Thursday, 2 December 2021 09:52 (two years ago) link

it's cool bc it's heavily indebted to stereolab of course, but they never would have made "solarized"

from her Facebook this morning


Head over to my channel on You Tube (before it probably gets taken down) I’ve uploaded a video edit of music I did a while back for Finnish fashion label ‘Invana Helsinki’ the music was used for their campaign called Intianni kesa /Indian Summer and I eventually released it on Finders Keepers records (prob a few copies still hanging about the office) the music was recorded at Eve Studios and it’s one of my most favourite set of songs I’ve written. I did a number of small solo shows here and there with visuals comped by my good friend Andy Rushton taken one of my favourite Japanese animated Films ‘Belladonna of Sadness’ with art by the genius Kuni Fukai directed by Eiichi Yamamoto based on the French novel La Sorciere /Satanism and Witchcraft, I apologise in advance at the plot of said film and pls view with discretion as it’s pretty graphic.

Time to pre-order her new album, of which the preceding single is the title track.

The Love In Constant Spectacle album came out on Friday. I'm just now getting around to it. It lives up to the high standards we have come to know from Jane Weaver. It's still psychedelic, but maybe more of a microdose trip this time around. More straight-ahead rock and pop and folk songs and less face-melting psylocybic weirdness, although it's always hovering in the air. I haven't relistened to older albums to confirm, but my first impression is that her vocals feel more foregrounded this time around. She is a treasure.

Title track is my favorite. There’s another one toward the end that could have come straight off The Noise Made By People

seeing her next month. haven't heard the new one yet but loved Flock

Really digging the new one. It is I guess more conventional, but really well written and produced. It reminds me a bit of glossy '80s art-pop, like peak Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel.

This is fantastic. Clever songs and arrangements/production. I've ignored her last several albums, I think because I had her plain name mixed up with Joan Shelley. Big mistake. Now I'm not sure if I ever heard her before. Either way I'll be digging into what I've missed.

great gig tonight, bought the new album. I only started listening to her last year, have some catching up to do. I was sort of aware of her band Kill Laura in the 90s but there's like 25 years of stuff since then I didn't know about at all

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 1 May 2024 22:19 (two months ago) link

glad you had a good time!
