is my favourite singer who is currently active. And she would be near the top of any list I made of favourite singers from any era. I’ve only ever travelled from Belfast to London specifically to see three acts: Queen, Kate Bush, and Marina. That was in 2008 at the Camden Roundhouse for the iTunes Festival (remember those!) I thought she was something special then, and she’s even better now. Her fifth album came out this week (it’s in the new music list at the end of this newsletter), and so there have been a few promotional stories in the press. Two that caught my eye are linked below.
A good piece on the album and Marina’s career from The New York Times.
