Vanessa Daou – Alcestis on the Poetry Circuit 2.0 – KID Recordings / DAOU Records

Continuing the retelling of her 1994 solo album Zipless Vanessa Daou’s inspired exploration of The Works Of Erica Jong proceeds with these excellent remixes by Roberto Rodriguez. Jazzy inflections are underpinned by robust drums and shuffling percussion as warm expanses of sound rebound around the vocalists breathy poetry, which when you listen closely says more than words can. The Rooted In Bondage Instrumental follows — referring to the story told, and for me it’s the aural texture which lives and breathes most resolutely – while highlighting all of the rich musical variety in full.

Release: May 24
