In this enervating muggy heat, I'm trying to concentrate on editing some poetry. In the background I'm enjoying Atsuko Kamura's enchanting album 'I am a Kamura' released by the Divine Agency on their own label. The range and texture of her voice is intense and subtle, very dramatic and beautiful treatments. I hope to see her live when she's back in the UK.
There's a sample of her songs on her myspace page, but the record is really worth getting.
