Album: Jim Moray, Skulk (Niag)
Moray – with his bleeps and beats approach to trad folk – has never been afraid to attract attention.
But since his 2003 break-out, few seem to have noticed that he's developed into something more than fodder for genius-or-Judas conversations. There's less sonic adventure these days but, crucially, he has learnt to inhabit songs rather than recite them. Two non-trad covers (Anais Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac) remind you that he's earnt the right to do what the hell he wants.
