The Mummers Sunday Mail-7 nights 14/6/09

I love this Brighton based band with the huge circus-like sound. It’s all built around the vocals of Raissa Khan-Panni that are like Bjork at her “Oh so Quiet” best. Throw in a bit of early Goldfrapp and the experimental work from the debut album of Guillemots and the flamboyance of Rufus Wainwright to make a gorgeous spell-binding mix. Wonderland starts off as a waltz but moves into a soundtrack for a dreamy French movie and the vocals on Lorca And The Orange Tree are bewitching. Orchestral twinkling pop at its best. Buy it. AC
