• listen with sarah The World of Listen With Sarah (6-track CD, £4.75)

    label: Cherryade

    Originally out in 2007. Describing her unique sound as ‘breakbleat farmcore hulastep serendipity’, Sarah and her computer have been making beautiful music together since 2002. In 2004 Sarah sent a 3 track demo to John Peel, who quickly picked up on the EP and played ‘Animal Hop’ on his Radio 1 show. In the next few months before his death in October 2004 John played Sarah no less than 9 times on his shows. After John’s death Radio 1 DJs Rob Da Bank and Huw Stephens continued to play her compositions and she gained international recognition and airplay. Listen With Sarah also appeared in the 2004 and 2005 Festive Fifty charts. 2006 was a busy year for her: she released her first material since the now unavailable highly acclaimed debut album Are You Sitting Comfortably in the form of the single ‘Another Nice Mix’, recorded a session for BBC Radio 3’s Andy Kershaw show and had the track ‘Blue Parsley’ appear on the Sunday Best compilation Folk Off alongside Vashti Bunyan and King Creosote amongst others. This ep features some of Sarah’s most exciting work so far, mixing the bizarre and the playful to create some truly beautiful, fascinating and entertaining sounds. “Lying somewhere between the all-out plunderphonic sample madness of Cassetteboy and People Like Us and the synapse-busting bastard pop of Richard X or Evolution Control Committee, yet retaining a sort of warmth not afforded of the aforementioned and their zany mash-ups.” - Drowned In Sound. “The sounds of Listen With Sarah seem to me remarkably redolent of the sweetest and most peculiar Englishness; the Englishness of eccentricity and natural strangeness.” - Plan B
