Boomkat Product Review:
It's been a deliciously mixed and surprising career so far for Italo-Icelandic singer-songwriter and wunder-producer Emiliana Torrini. Some of you may know her from a string of adequately obscure releases for Bjork's One Little Indian imprint, or possibly from those collectable remix 7" releases for Fat Cat a good 5 years ago. In actual fact most of the country will be unknowingly familiar with Torrini's incredible work behind the scenes - including most recently co-writing and producing Kylie Minogue's "Slow". All the more interesting to discover just how beautifully understated "Fisherman's Woman" is (this time round for the seemingly unstoppable Rough Trade imprint) - a bittersweet lilting melancholy permeating each of these 12 songs, almost entirely performed on a quietly plucked guitar, with beautifully sparse yet shimmering arrangements of piano, bass, melodica, organ and percussion dropped in from time to time. With her mildly eccentric accentuation and almost unfathomably sweet delivery playing such a central role here, this is an album that needs treating gently, gorge on this record (believe us, its tempting) - and it all gets a little too much. "Fishermans Woman" is a wondrous record - receiving unstoppably heavy airplay in our office despite every intention of cooling off from it for a while, mesmerising anyone who's stood in its melancholly path or come into contact with its priceless charm. For fans of everyone from Laura Veirs to Nick Drake and Bjork - this is an absolute must. Highly Recommended.
