I went to the bookies tonight, not having listened to Speeche’s album but having a wee hunch she might win, even though she was an outsider. Imagine my horror when I discovered that she had risen to second favourite to the unlikely favourite Florence and the Machine. Anyway, my search for value meant I had to (stupidly) look elsewhere.
I alighted on Lisa Hannigan.
So, I spotified Speech.
Bugger me. What a lovely, really beautiful piece of music this album is.
I take it all back. She should have been odds on.
Honesttly, it’s a stunning and totally engaging record. It”s quite emotional.
