Sometimes you hear a piece of music that moves you in a way like no other. "Shut Up, My Dear" is such a piece that moved me the first time I heard it and continues to do so. A song like no other and sung with deep and aching passion by Richard, Lucy and Willow. Willow's impact on the overall tone of the piece is a show stopper. A piece of old school computerised speech software asked to "speak" some words on the track. The interesting and very surprising aspect of this is the accentuation of the voice which is unmanipulated in any way. Words are stretched, sadness and pain are implied - it is just breathtaking. We'll get a video link on here as soon as we can.
We have included the "Willow" vocal track.
Whatever It Is - a dreamy Psychedelic tracks with the voice of Karel Fialka, the sort of track that you don't want to end.
