SUSAN JAMES – Sea Glass (Bandcamp)

Following a couple of pleasant country/folk albums, Susan James has employed the talents of The High Llamas’s Sean O’Hagan to provide some gorgeous string arrangements for her third album. These have transformed her songs into instantly memorable pop pieces that linger in your brain after one hearing. It’s hard to pick a favourite song as they are all so good, and I hope this gets her the recognition she deserves.
