Yann Tiersen feat. Elizabeth Fraser

The divine Elizabeth Fraser has quietly returned from her most recent oblivion by lending her crushingly gorgeous vocal pipes to a couple of tracks on Les Retrouvailles, the new album from Amelie composer Yann Tiersen. On the This Mortal Coil-esque "Mary", Liz gives one of her most straightforward vocal performances ever, likely due to the fact that the lyric is so intriguing with lines like "...and I can feel the taste of your 3rd birthday cake." Here, on "Kala" she conjures the ghost of Cocteau Twins past by multilayering her vocals, all echoey and haunty-like atop Tiersen's swirly, cinematic musical backdrop. She swoops and hollers in classic Liz-speak fashion, sending ripples of satisfaction down the spines of those of us who wait patiently for her every rare murmur. Anyway, it's good stuff. Hopefully this will help clear some of the bad Cocteau juju left lingering after thier cancelled Coachella reunion plans. Note to Liz: Cough up album already, would ya? Yann Tiersen feat. Elizabeth Fraser - Kala MP3 5.75MB, 320kbps, 44kHz
