I missed one…Erland and the Carnival’s Nightingale

Funny, just saw this review at Blurt…must have run a week or so ago.

I should really start paying attention.


Eerily tuneful, caught between stark simplicity and over-the-top electronic excess, Nightingale is to folk music what the movie Edward Scissorhands was to fairytales. That is to say, it is fey and pale and full of shadowy uncertainties, yet also, when it wishes to be, sublimely, tunefully pop.
