Emily Portman "The Glamoury"  

I've had this album on repeat for the last couple of days after forgetting about it for a month or two. If you like the song in the vid above ("Stick Stock", and it's not really a video just the song with the album cover as a backdrop), then you'll like the rest of the album. It's not all quite as deliciously creepy as "Stick Stock", but it's all at that end of the folk spectrum - some trad songs but mostly original (I think) with that non-Disneyfied fairytale feel.

Ahha, that's the one I was pretty sure was trad, and then I wasn't sure if there were more or not - thanks for the info! :)

Stand-out track on the album for me is still "Stick Stock" (which was the first one I heard), but "Grey Stone" is another of my favourites - as well as the song itself, I love the way it's a different perspective on the myth.

I've loved "Stick Stock" since the first time I heard it - absolutely knocked me sideways.
