Stealing Sheep, The Old Market, Hove - 17 Febuary 2013 (supporting Villagers) by Nige B, on Flickr
Stealing Sheep are three young women who trade in a wonderful psych-folk that evokes Espers, Golden Fable, and other wonderful bands of that ilk. They are part of that long and esteemed lineage that goes all the way back to Vashti Banyan and Shirley Collins and doubtless way before them too. If that's the sort of thing that ticks some or all of your boxes then you should seek them out. On the strength of this performance, and some cursory YouTube research, I will be buying their album this very day. It's on Heavenly which is usually a very good sign.
