Thea Gilmore - Angels In The Abattoir (May 2012)
May's Angels song was a tad late due to the dreaded 'unforeseen technical difficulties' but here it is...
In Thea's own words: "The first is my Meatloaf moment!.. not from a soundslike point of view.. but a 'what was it he wouldn't do?' perspective! So here is The Word.. and if anyone can guess what the word is, they're a better poet than I am. Answers on a postcard."
The Word is undeniably beautiful, an uncluttered, slickly produced piano ballad with an infectious repetitive chorus in which Thea issues the simple refrain: "There's a word for this". So is the word 'love'? That would be too easy but maybe the point is that things are not that simple and cannot be summed up in a single word.
