Cate le Bon “Cyrk”

I’ve played her stuff on my show before, but someone else had reviewed it. I always end up playing artists whose names I can’t pronounce. It really puts me to work.
And that’s fantastic because “Puts Me to Work” is a great song on this record. Also good is “Julia,” which is a waltz and has an organ of some sort and inexplicably makes me think of my pre-algebra class I was in when I was 10. I can’t explain it. It’s inexplicable.
I absolutely love “Fold the Cloth.” The synths and mixed-too-high guitar make for a really good time. This one is great for old school Stereolab fans. Love. Love. Love. “Through the Mill” is also pretty good.
The last track is “Ploughing Out Part 2.” It is better than “Ploughing Out Part 1,” which is right before it. I don’t know why she didn’t just make one big-ass song, but who am I to judge?
