While no longer performing under the nom de plume Ginger Lee, former Bat for Lashes multi-instrumentalist Caroline Weeks takes her former group’s sound to a whole new level of ambient sophistication on her downright lovely solo debut, Songs For Edna, a collection of tunes derived lyrically from the works of early 20th century American poet Edna St. Vincent-Millay. Using a three-quarters size classical guitar, she takes the Kate Bush-by-way-of-Bjork art pop of her Bat for Lashes days and roots it in a more fertile landscape that opens up Weeks’ lush, lilting voice more so than anything she has done. Songs for Edna is a haunting collection of songs that should appeal to both poets and pop fans alike.
