Key to The City – Rebecca Clamp – £8.99 + P&P
Rebecca Clamp‘s second release with Folkwit Records, Key to the City is a love letter to Clamp’s neighbourhood in Helsinki, but you don’t need to have been to Finland to appreciate these songs about love, fragility and finding home. As with her debut album Nocturnal Leap (2005), her lyrics delight in the small-great things in life: parasitic wasps, a special bookshop, and a bearded female saint all make colourful appearances here. The album features performances from Franka Oroza (FEW), JP Cavonius (Flannelmouth, Scaramangas and Treehouse), and Alex Reeves (Dizzee Rascal, EZIO) amongst others.
The album is being released in Finland on 11/2/2011 and is also available to buy online from Folkwit Records. The full UK retail release date is scheduled for 4 April 2011.
