Cate Le Bon is a folk singer/songwriter from Penboyr, Wales. Since 2009, she’s released two albums, and has another — Mug Museum— set for release on November 12.
I have her 2012 album CYRK, which I’ve listened to a number of times, but I’ve never heard her first record, and I really know nothing about her other than that she sings in English and in Welsh.
I got something in the mailbag the other day announcing this single, the forthcoming album, and a brief West Coast USA tour. On some of those dates, she’ll be playing with the magnificent Basia Bulat.
I have no time to spare tonight, so I’ll offer the song with no commentary.
“Are You With Me Now” by Cate Le Bon
Okay. One tiny bit of commentary. Something about the rhythm of it reminds me of “I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight” by Richard and Linda Thompson.
You can pre-order a digital copy of Mug Museum from the iTunes store.
