Had enough of silly love songs?

So has Petra Jean Phillipson, who, six years after her debut Notes on Love, follows it up with a dark and disturbing double album.

This is music for those who find Anna Calvi too "pop" and can stare into the face of Tom Waits' Bone Machine without flinching. It is wondrous and terrifying at the same time and PJP – the voice of David Holmes' Free Association – reveals herself to be a mesmerising artist to watch through your fingers.
