Sarabeth Tucek – new album ‘Get Well Soon’

| On 13, Apr 2011

It’s an incredible, important record, but we’ve been telling you that for months. Rough Trade Shops certainly agree, as they’ve named it their Album Of The Week. Here’s what other people have been saying about it:

“A starkly beautiful record that mines the sound of the last four decades of Americana” Q (****)

“A set of songs that are often as disquietingly spare as they are beautiful” Uncut (****)

“A dignified record bound together by grief” The Times (****)

“A brilliant second album… raw, scarred but abundant” Daily Mirror
“Somewhere in the triangle created by Nico, Beth Gibbons and Joni Mitchell” Loud & Quiet (8/10)

“There’s something really quite splendid about ‘Get Well Soon’. It could well prove to be a timeless little wonder” BBC Music

“An intimate album that talks about pain, self-destruction and death, but ultimately heals with its magic” Amelia’s Magazine

“A touching testament to the strength of the human spirit, from a singer who has an innate ability to deftly convey the contents of her heart with an eloquent, understated majesty” The Von Pip Musical Express

“If you’re not left in a mournful daze, tears blistering your eyes… then surely you can’t be human” The Line Of Best Fit

You can buy it from the Sonic Cathedral Shop, or any of the following:
