from: Northumberland, England

Recorded over two sold-out nights in December of 2010 at London’s Union Chapel, The Unthanks: The Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnsons is folk pop at its most exquisite with gorgeous, potent vocals. At times reminiscent of Portishead. Haunting. Always intensely emotional. Relating thoughts and stories, The Unthanks put on a charming live show. Robert Wyatt is a British underground musician and founding member of Soft Machine. Antony & The Johnsons is led by Antony Hegarty. The sisters demonstrate their admiration of both artists through this collection of songs.
