  • Touted in the late 1960s as a promising British folk artist, singer/songwriter Vashti Bunyan faded into obscurity after her 1970 debut, JUST ANOTHER DIAMOND DAY. Encouraged by that record's warmly received 2000 reissue and a growing number of admiring young artists--including Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, and Adem--Bunyan unveiled a new album in 2005, aided by the aforementioned performers. The result is a warm, inviting set of songs that showcases Bunyan's delicate voice and, like much of Nick Drake's work, succeeds in being spare and lush at the same time.
Professional Reviews
Magnet (pp.87-88) - "LOOKAFTERING softly plucks and clearly enunciates its bell-toned intentions."

The Wire (p.57) - "As an atmospheric shot of temporally dislocated folk spirit, it sits perfectly alongside JUST ANOTHER DIAMOND DAY."

Dirty Linen (p.55) - "Amazingly, her voice, songwriting, and arrangements have remained virtually untouched, and the magic is still there."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.63) - Ranked #33 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[With] a pure, gauzy backdrop for solemn ruminations on a grown-up, battle-scarred world."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[S]he's back, her voice a preternatural, childlike delicacy - astonishingly unaltered."
