• lutine White Flowers (CD, £10.95)

    label: Front and Follow

    Formed in 2013 in Brighton, Lutine (Heather Minor and Emma Morton) are already establishing themselves are a mesmerising live act through a handful of shows (for the likes of Joseph Stannard’s The Outer Church and recent supports for Kristen McClement and unlikely bedfellows Stephen O’Malley) and have now translated their minimal, fragile and evocative sound onto record for the first time. The album reflects a shared love of traditional folk and modern classical, distorted through a lens of medieval and baroque music, traditional Indian and Chinese music, dream/synth pop, minimalism, experimental music and 60s/70s folk. Both familiar and uncanny (inspired equally by Thomas Hardy and The Twilight Zone), Heather and Emma have produced a startling set of songs exploring classic themes in a unique and bewitching way. “Flawless harmonies, layered across both traditional and original songs that frequently seethe with a honeyed menace.” Joseph Stannard, The Wire. The album is available on CD (limited 1st edition of 300). 1. Espera 2. White Flowers 3. Synnove 4. So it Goes 5. Died of Love 6. Come Wander 7. All I have is Gold 8. Sallow Tree 9.
