Ruby - Waiting For Light

Ruby and John

Just listening to Ruby's latest, recorded at her home in Scotland and over some time I think with the title track released back in January/February 2013, and it is exactly as I remember her earlier work in the mid-90s: electronic pulses and static and other noises amongst strident to lush vocals, sometimes multi-tracked - she was one of the first artists in my listening experience to merge this electronica with singer/songwriter traditions. So my fond recollections have been reinforced by this similar offering, but made all the more acceptable and pleasing by her distinctive cover of John Martyn's Go Down Easy. I think John would have been delighted as well.
