Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release by the British singer/songwriter. Flo Morrissey is young, yet her voice and her songwriting possess a timelessness; an otherworldly naivety coupled with the weight of an old soul. It's a rare quality, one that calls to mind the work of Karen Dalton, Jackson C Frank or Joanna Newsom, and that marks her out as a distinct and remarkable talent. She has a magpie-ish eye for inspiration, seizing on the visual stimulation of art exhibitions and photography, as well as a love of poetry, literature, first lines filched from Poirot books, and a deep and resonant love of France and the French language. Morrissey recorded the album with producer Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Cate Le Bon), spending two and a half months in Los Angeles - a city she found both "lonely" and "amazing", as she spent her days in and out of the studio "trying to walk to places in my clogs." The songs had been written so intimately, held so close to her heart, spurning all offers of co-writing "because I wanted it to be very personal and an honest thing" and so there was a degree of trepidation about showing them to someone in such a raw state".
