Lucinda Sieger - Heart In The Sky
Sieger began as an acoustic troubadour but on her second, self-released album she's dramatically raised the bar.
Assisted by various members of the Transglobal Underground/Temple Of Sound axis, Heart In The Sky is an adventurous mixture of chilled beats and floatingly diaphanous soundscapes, plus her own crystalline vocals and haunting compositions. Think of Beth Orton's collaborations with the Chemicals, but with dashes of Rickie Lee Jones and Jhelisa Anderson.
