Vashti Bunyan (5/5)

Year: 2005
Label: Fat Cat
Genre: Atmospheric Folk
TRT: 35:31

I'm not going to go in to the entire back story leading to the release of this album, you can look that up on your own. I'll just say that Mrs. Bunyan released an album in 1970 to mediocre success, and retired to the English country side to raise her family. Then after a fantastic chain of events she released this album in 2005 to much acclaim. Though keeping the same aesthetic as Just Another Diamond Day, she brings much more life experience to the table this time around. She has crafted a timeless classic full of warmth and soothing beauty with touches of nostalgia seasoned with sage.
