Miss Von Trapp
Ok, PJ Harvey's new album.

I can't stop listening to it - but it's scary and chilling and wonderful all at the same time - and I've a fairly horrible idea of what it's about but if it is what I think it is it's worrying!!

I've only listened through it once, but have yet to really focus on it. It was mesmerizing, I must admit. I'll really listen today, and get back to you. :)

I adore her.

Yep. I looked it up in an NME review and though it says 'When Under Ether' refers to the death of a baby during childbirth, I feel theres more to it than just that.

In the lyrics there's other references throughout the whole album and the sequencing of the songs tells a whole expanded story about wanting a child, having it die on the birthing table, then regret, family breakup followed by a woman's suicide. Probably post-natal depression.

I do hope the ideas came from elsewhere rather than a personal exorcism - her singing is kind of cracked and fragile.
