ANAIS MITCHELL - 'Hadestown'

Okay, the concept of an American folk opera based on Greek mythology may not excite much perhaps but put that to one side and you’ll find yourself caught up in an amazing piece of music. Written and conceived by Anais Mitchell it is performed as an ensemble piece that combines the talents of half a dozen artists including Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver), Greg Brown, Ani diFranco and of course, Anais Mitchel herself. Greg Brown’s vocal on Why We Built The Wall is worth the price of admission to this world alone but as a whole this is a mesmerising album with beautiful melodies and performances. ***** (£10CD)
