Sem­per Fem­ina (More Alarm­ing Records) The sixth al­bum from this feted Bri­tish folkie – writ­ten dur­ing a “par­tic­u­larly mas­cu­line time” in the singer­song­writer’s life – ex­plores the idea of wom­an­hood, both sub­jec­tively and oth­er­wise. There’s a var­ied­ness to the songs – stripped al­most-blues; Dusty-style soul; pas­toral-style fin­ger-pick­ing; elec­tric coun­try­bol­stered folk – but an air of thought­ful in­ti­macy keeps every­thing feel­ing con­nected.
