George Pringle released her debut album, 'Salon des Refusés' in 2009, a collection of largely spoken-word, stream-of-consciousness tales about London, Audrey Hepburn and the films of Zeffirelli set to a GarageBand backing. It's been a while in the making, but the follow-up is here, and finds Pringle singing, rather than talking, along to her laptop, revealing a voice every bit as nuanced and idiosyncratic as her rhyming couplets. 'Playground' and 'Real As Sound', when it finally kicks in, are among the highlights on this album that somehow manages to be simultaneously aloof, challenging and charming.
