St. Eustacia – Kate Rogers (Grand Central) 4/5 stars

the-independent-logoShe has lent her voice to the likes of label-mate Aim, but Canadian chanteuse Kate Rogers has finally released a record in her own right. And what a record. St. Eustacia would be little more than an average collection of polished folk-pop, were it not for a couple of extraordinary off-beat arrangements, including the cinematic “Nothing Appeals To Me Here”. Rogers sets her emotionally raw lyrics against pared-down guitars, piano and the odd electronic bear. A stunning debut. Henrietta Roussoulis
