The Innocence Mission – Now The Day Is Over

On the heels of last year’s career-topping Befriended comes this minimalist reworking of old standards from matrimonial duo Karen and Don Peris, alongside upright bassist Mike Bitts.

Clocking in at half an hour?and with Mrs P sounding like a soft pout through clouds of duck-down?it’s ideal lullaby comfort music, extra warmth courtesy of Don’s suspended-in-air guitar lines.

There’s a touch of Victoria Williams’ Sings Some Ol’ Songs here, only kink-free and much sweeter, rendering “Over The Rainbow” and “What A Wonderful World” pleasantly diverting rather than essential.
