Q (UK) - - Q Review New Albums -

Judy Dyble was the first vo­cal­ist in English folk-rock trail­blaz­ers Fair­port Con­ven­tion, Andy Lewis is a mu­si­cian best known for his work with Paul Weller, and Sum­mer Danc­ing is their first col­lab­o­ra­tion and it’s great. Dyble sings in a beau­ti­fully enun­ci­ated voice that’s redo­lent of both Marc Bolan and Syd Bar­rett. Lewis ac­com­pa­nies her pre­cise yet drift­ing vo­cals with part-acous­tic, partpsychedelic ar­range­ments that con­jure an eter­nal af­ter­noon of London av­enues and sub­ur­ban hedges. Echoes of early Pink Floyd, Saint Eti­enne and a tougher Vashti Bun­yan pre­vail, but this is an orig­i­nal and haunt­ing col­lec­tion.
