After writing about Robin Guthrie the other day I got the urge to dig out some of the music of Elizabeth Fraser. and so I did. I can't write anything about her that hasn't been written before. She is one a remarkable talent, and a rare occasion where the use of the word "unique" is 100% applicable.
Here are some of my favourite examples of her work with various bands and artists.
The first clip is `Carolyns Fingers' by the Cocteau Twins from the 1988 album `Blue Bell Knoll'. The second is the video of This Mortal Coil's breathtaking cover version of Tim Buckley's`Song To The Siren' from 1983. The third clip is by the French musician Yann Tiersen with `Mary' from the 2005 album `Les Retrouvailles', and finally `Primitive Painters' from 1985 by the indie band Felt. Enjoy!
