The latest news about the musician Kate Bush and her work

“The vanishing world illuminated by a furnace-blast of life”: LA Times

3.5/4 from Margaret Wappler at the LA Times:

“From up on that hill, perhaps wearing a capelet over a flowy Victorian gown, Kate Bush has been regarded as a spirit saint of fearless individuality by a generation of musicians … All that adoration in the ether must’ve stirred the reclusive British singer-songwriter to create not just one album this year  … but also a second one, “50 Words for Snow,” an art-song cycle that veers from delicate to blustery but always with a sheen of elegance. Bush grounds her songs in the permafrost of winter, with her piano work sounding like the first stirrings after a cold snap … It might be cold in Bush’s world, but it’s far from frozen. It’s the vanishing world illuminated by a furnace-blast of life.”
