About this album

A major departure for Cerys Matthews and, in some ways, a since un-repeated one.
Following the split with Catatonia, Matthews moved to Tennessee and began to record the album with Bucky Baxter producing.
Inspired by Blue grass, Welsh Hymns, French folk and the Blues. The album declared Cerys Matthews’ encyclopaedic knowledge of musical history and an ability to experiment freely with genres and language. The tone of the album was emphatically different from her previous work with catatonia.
Using her typically husky vocals in an untypical way to signify fragility and emphasise the haunting quality of many of the albums songs.

It is perhaps this sense of vulnerability where this Album so differs from her work before or indeed since.
