Mary Dillon – North (2013)

maryNorth is an album that feels more like the ripples on a still lake; peaceful and soothing but with something much deeper underneath. Mary Dillon’s incredible vocals help to make it an excellent example of everything that’s right with the folk music of today as well as of times-gone-by.

A pedal steel player and singer-songwriter from Copenhagen, Maggie Björklund has a wide-ranging background in country, indie and film-music and was most recently to be found playing on Jack White’s Lazaretto album. That her debut album featured Mark Lanegan and Calexico’s Joey Burns and John Convertino was a good indication of where she was coming from musically and her follow-up titled ‘Shaken’ reinforces and expands the picture with a band that comprises Convertino, cellist Barb Hunter, PJ Harvey alumni John Parish on guitars, Jim Barr from Portishead on upright bass and a guest vocal by Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner.
