Mary Coughlan

"Mary Coughlan is an impassioned performer who expresses herself best through the words and tunes of others. Her impressive new album has all the swaggering "nu-chanson" of artists such as Arthur H or the Tiger Lillies but with an extra, more accessible dimension. She knows it's not enough to sing literate words over competent backing - the sound must embody the meaning of the songs. Erik Visser's arrangements ensure that well-chosen tracks - such as Pornography, and Kirsty MacColl's Bad - gain in translation. Coughlan is not a rock singer, but she gives pieces such as Moon in a Taxi Cab an authenticity that few rockers retain after their first flush. Neither is she a jazzer, yet she wraps her voice around the contours of Some Cats Know (Leiber and Stoller) as sexily as Peggy Lee in her prime. She can do scary, too: witness the eloquent bile of Antarctica, and the pounding, punishing Whore of Babylon. Tom Waits has met his Irish match" The Guardian '09
