Spin. Jenny 'Blazing' Wilson.

I've been a fan of Jenny Wilson ever since I first heard Let my shoes lead me forward. Not only is it a terrific song with a wonderfully whimsical video featuring shoes and a stunning stop-frame animation, but the album from which it came is brilliant. A tune well worth tracking down is A Brief Story which was a free download. Hardships! is Jenny's second, much darker album and now a couple of years on, Blazing has been released. Blazing is a re-working of many of the tracks on Hardships! featuring the Tensta Gospel Choir resulting in a freer, more experimental affair. It's just landed in my post box and initial listens are terrifically satisfying.
