about

Janie Mitchell Psalm & Squall

Now this is a surprise – a British singer/songwriter putting together a gem of a debut that runs the gamut stylistically from Enyaesque atmosphere, to moody neo-folk, to pop, with some clever lyrics adapted from Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Ovid, recorded not in Jolly Olde but in Portland, Oregon. Janie Mitchell’s flexible voice resembles Kate Bush one minute (“Renascence” or “Takilma Nic”) and Dead Can Dance (if they sang intelligible English lyrics) the next. She gets a lot of good input from multi-instrumentalist Daniel Crommie (synths, drum programming, flute and penny whistle). From the Welsh border to Portland, Oregon – hat’s off to New Weave Records for a real discovery.


Dirty Linen, 1994.
