I always loved this and I dug it out to play for the kids. Presumed it was a one hit wonder. I didn't know he had a full album and has gone on to do loads of stuff. The album is very ween.

Jessica Pratt. A name I overlooked for the last couple of years despite it popping up a good bit in various forms of recommendations. Really like her voice, but might not be for everyone.

Yeah I might listen to something to like that but maybe with less bombast

I'm finally digging into Sacred Harp/shape note singing. I have seen a couple of videos of it (including the Cork group doing it) and I have an album of a similar style from some Scottish island community but listening now to proper recordings from the US south. Exceptional stuff!

there's also a style called lining out where everyone starts singing the same line but takes as long as they want. when the last note has sounded, everyone moves on to the next line. pure, unadulterated melisma.
