Once hailed as the anglo Coeur de Pirate (or was it the other way around?), Caroline Keating took her sweet time putting together this debut LP, and it was well worth the wait. Here’s a record which instantly feels as warm and comfortable as an old sweater, as sweet and endearing as an old friend. While most of the songs are built around Keating’s wonderfully textured voice and her simple but effective piano melodies, she also gets assists on some tracks from such great local players as Miles Perkin (upright bass), Robbie Kuster (drums), Brad Barr (guitar), Chris Seligman (French horn), Sebastian Chow (violin) and Socalled (accordion). Lovely.
