Mama Kin The Magician's Daughter
, one feels astutely connected to a kind of new age, womanly awareness of the world. In this album of predominantly luscious, human, somehow ancient tracks, there are fables about loss, being loved, being tempted, being hurt.
Guided by hypnotic drumming, there is a rhythmic, tidal pull to The Magician's Daughter - like a river current. It is deep in sections, or gently meandering - yet with an inquisitive, even knowing awareness of what lies within and around us.
Not only for the alternate set to appreciate, this album has a haunting Amy Winehouse (had she lived in a commune) kind of vibe, and the gentle music sets up Mama Kin's vocal, giving ample room to weave her special, lilting magic.
