Folk is Cool Again

Well, at least, it is according to an article in today’s Observer.

One of the new names to watch that they list is Sheila Chandra. I’m not sure I’d describe her as a new name though. I first heard of her in 1982 when she was the lead singer on Monsoon’s hit single “Ever So Lonely”. A few years later she sang on “Raining” by Ancient Beatbox, which was one of the first Cooking Vinyl records that I heard.

In it’s monthly music magazine, the Observer also mentions that a new Beth Orton album is imminent – which has to be a good thing.
