The voices of The Unthanks can be a love or hate-issue. I remember buying one of their albums, because they covered a Nick Drake-song on it, but I couldn't stand it. On the other hand I like their album "Last", so it's not a continuous thing.

But it's great these songs from Molly will get more attention this way.

I can understand why they might grate for some (I don't think the wife's very keen), but it's "love" for me personally. The Bairns album is especially wonderful.

Really interested to hear them do some of Molly's songs. I didn't realise there were enough to fill an album. In fact I've only now looked and discovered the existence of this:
