Ghostpoet - Shedding Skin on the Moon

A new album brought to my attention by being the featured album on Mr Steve Lurpack's excellent Roundtable discussion on BBC Radio 6 music. My interest was initially stoked with the news that it involves the brilliant Nadine Shah and the two tracks that she features on are highlights, but it is also a very consistently good and varied LP. There is a number of other great contributions from the likes of Lucy Rose and Paul Smith the lead singer of Maximo Park, who like Ms Shah, comes from the land to the north east of The North..

His debut from 2011 was Mercury nominated, but he managed to avoid the "Mercury curse" of debut winners as old hand PJ Harvey won. He released a second in 2013 that also features Lucy Rose along with  the legendary Tony Allen, but this new one has been described as a "musical departure". Check it out via Spotify below:
