topics like nostalgia and heartbreak. The mood conveyed at times through quite haunting keyboard and cello fuelled instrumentals. A case in point being ‘Nothing Person’, whereby Jen’s meandering vocals and terse lyrics are bound to set the listener on a mystic mind bending journey with stern reiteration of the line;
“Alice followed the rabbit, nothing personal just habit “
There is a dark almost PJ Harvey like kick to some of the tracks like ‘Glue’ and ‘Swarm’ that keeps you on your toes and makes this 15 track album value for money. Jen oozes authenticity and honesty that is so refreshing in an industry typically devoid of these characteristics. The album unwinds to produce a proud blues finish courtesy of ‘Otherside’ and ‘Wasting Time’, with the former summing up the blues spirit, yet Gloeckner with her upbeat vocal still manages to leave the listener feeling uplifted.
