The Independent Culture

Ever since Bob Dylan's "Judas" moment, musicians have (happily) felt quite free to hop from acoustic to electric and back.

So it really shouldn't surprise anyone that Kelli Ali, the one-time lead singer of electronic group the Sneaker Pimps, should choose to record this, her third solo album, with only flutes, strings and acoustic guitars. It's an elongated lullaby of album; steeped in medieval melodies and awash with bucolic charm and whispered, wispy wonder.

Pick of the album: The almost sinister 'The Savages'
