PJ Harvey

February 21, 2011

PJ Harvey’s eighth record, Let England Shake, is out now. Hallelujah. It’s an eerily beautiful rumination on a world at war written over the last several years, reflecting both our current and past bloodied status as a civilization at large. One might file it under the category of an important work from an important artist. (Just a guess.)

Once again, Harvey is accompanied by her long-time compatriots John Parish and Mick Harvey, but on the record Harvey finds a new voice and affinity for autoharp among other things, which makes the record stand out from much of her already extraordinary catalogue. Listen and be moved.
