Suzanne Vega: Tales From The Realm Of The Queen Of Pentacles

The music crackles with obsessive claps and electronic noise unreels in acoustic decoration
 

It is a long time since Suzanne Vega recorded new songs, and years of thought have been poured into this album: Tarot (‘Fool’s Complaint’, ‘Portrait Of The Knight Of Wands’), the Old Testament (‘Jacob And The Angel’), myth (‘Don’t Uncork What You Can’t Contain’), fashion (‘I Never Wear White’). The music crackles with obsessive claps and electronic noise like shipbreaking, unreels in acoustic decoration.
