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

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
