Island
by Mary Hampton
Taken from her about page: http://www.maryhampton.org/about/

Mary Hampton was born in London in 1977, the second of two daughters, to a distinguished English playwright. She has been a professional whistle-maker and travelling history-book salesman. She is now a writer/singer living in Brighton.

Fetching out old songs from the silent archives of the traditional canon, and winching up new songs from her imagination, she then sets them both to work alongside each other. In this way, she can play with certain dynamic tensions that are perpetually at work in the world: the past and the present, the natural and the civilized, the extraordinary and the familiar, the symbolic and the real, the pillar and the post etc.

She sang on Blow It Up, Burn It Down, Kick It 'Til It Bleeds, a 2006 album by Stereolab side project Imitation Electric Piano.

Her album 'My Mother's Children' has been described as "a sparse collection of her own songs, which recline with shimmering sensuality in various shady cloaks of weirdness"

I'm going to jam a few of them.
