Perseverance. Patience. These are essential tools in any musician’s survival kit. Anna Cordell knows these disciplines all too well. It’s been a long time coming for her debut album and it’s a gem. I feature a stunning track which is already in running for a favourite for this year! She plays tender yet deceptively complex folk music heightened by her penchant for the minor key. As well, a brilliant new release from Ryan Power, sparse melancholic electronic folk from Keeley Forsyth and the return of the Gadflys!
