Me And Armini Released: 07/09/08 by Emiliana TorriniEmiliana Torrini is an artist who may well have passed under your radar. Previous releases (including the hugely acclaimed 'Fisherman's Woman') have kept things fairly lo-fi, but new record 'Me and Armini' aims to change all that. Where 'Fisherman's Woman' whispered Torrini's name, 'Me and Armini' shouts it out loud. perhaps drawing on her more "pop" sensibilities (Torrini co-wrote / produced 'Slow' for Kylie) her third album is a hugely ambitious and aspirational record with Emiliana's soaring voice centre stage, bolstered by a rich gamut of musical styles. From the summery skank of the title track (and first single), the yearning, spine-tingling 'Big Jumps', and the surging, breathless 'Jungle Drum', 'Me and Armini' is a truly fantastic album. Once again pairing up with her long-time producer/collaborator Dan Carey, Torrini's 'Me and Armini' is a work of total delight that will appeal to fans of Kate Bush, Cocorosie, Diane Cluck and Mariee Sioux.
