Album: Angie Palmer, Meanwhile, as Night Falls, (Akrasia)

Click to follow

Fairytales, folk stories, enchanted forests and fiery lakes – so far so promising, as Angie Palmer's latest perfectly crafted offering gets a proper release in the January lull.

'Meanwhile' is further proof that what "the British Lucinda Williams" lacks in Americana credentials (she's from Preston), she makes up for with a dues-paying busking-in-Paris past. "The mind has monster great and small/Just waiting for the night to fall" she sings on "Slip Away From Me". Palmer's night should fall more often.

Pick of the album: The spooky and epic 'Weeping Wood'
