Tracklist: Mary Hampton - Honey In The Rock

Brightonian Hampton has been around for a few years - in fact her only full-length album, My Mother's Children, was at 43 in our albums of 2008 list - but Rough Trade have picked her up for a one-off 7" out July 4th. It's as sparse and unsettlingly personal as her previous work, a fragile and oddly unnerving work that borrows from a very English coastal folk lineage, constructing its own gothic folk tale ecosystem. Lovingly warm and hairs-on-end cold simultaneously.
