Album: Sarah Nixey, Brave Tin Soldiers (Black Lead)
Sunday 08 May 2011
In his excellent Britpop memoir Bad Vibes, Luke Haines remembers recruiting Nixey for Black Box Recorder largely on the basis that she had the ability to make all men fall in love with her. It's a power which, on this evidence, remains undiminished.
The second Nixey solo album is a thing of subtle gorgeousness, with Nixey's none-more-English, sexy school-mistress diction dealing with topics as bleakly improbable as the Bridgend teenage suicides.
