Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White

The chemistry that Spacebomb geek Matthew E. White finds with London folk sprite Flo Morrissey feels more divine than manufactured on this lovingly crafted covers album. The songs, from Frank Ocean and Beck back to Nino Ferrer and Leonard Cohen, are reborn in the dappled sunshine of White's rich, witty, obsessively sculpted production. Morrissey swoops like a bluebird through Barry Gibb's "Grease" and an ingenious Velvets-meets-Brian Wilson reshaping of "Sunday Morning". The spiralling incantation of "Govindam" confirms a destination on the distinctly spiritual side of soulful.
