Cate Le Bon – ‘CYRK II’

This record isn’t so much the sequel its title suggests as 26 minutes of the bits left off ‘CYRK’, Cate Le Bon’s second album. Maybe you think this is hubristic, considering it was only released four months ago, and its Cardiff-based creator is not exactly a household name. Well, shush. ‘CYRK’ is a slowburner candidate for psych/folk album of...

Cate Le Bon – ‘What is Worse’

Smoke-voiced psychonaut Cate is about to release ‘CYRK II’, an EP of tracks that didn’t make her recent album. A peek at the velvety rich offcuts therein here, as a bare, grungy slow strum picks up pace to become something equal parts sweet and wrong. Emily Mackay

Album review: Cate Le Bon – ‘Oh Me Oh My’

Don’t let those vintage dresses and heavy false eyelashes fool you. Cate Le Bon is one strange creature. Her odd, beautiful songs burrow like furtive woodland creatures to a safe nest lodged firmly between tradition and individual talent. She might stand clearly in a lineage of Welsh pysch-folk from ’70s acts such as Meic Stevens, Heather Jones and Brân...
