iTunes Editors' Notes

With a name like Emiliani Torrini, you wouldn’t expect this artist to be Icelandic, but she is (her father is Italian and her mother is from Iceland). There’s something about much of Torrini’s music that exudes a kind of remote, chilly, and moody vibe. Torrini’s voice is consistently fragile, hardly more than a mere whisper at times; she recalls Bon Iver more than she does her female Icelandic compatriot Bjork. With a simple, unadorned arrangement of spare guitars, airy drumming, and delicate vocal expression, Torrini flutters between Bon Iver’s school of alone-in-the-woods, sublimely heartachey, quasi-folk (“Fireheads,” “Birds,” “Beggar’s Prayer”), a slight jazzy tone (“Ha Ha,” “Hold Heart”), and a downtempo, Portishead-flavored  hip-ness (“Heard it all Before,” “Gun,” “Dead Duck”).  Her breathless, sometimes child-like intonation could get tiresome, were it not for bolder, playful tracks that pick up the mood and the pace: “Me and Armini” is a lulling, reggae rhythm tune; “Big Jumps” is a sweetly innocent, buoyant confection;  and “Jungle Drum” is a mischievous, gleeful little number that will have you dancing around the kitchen.

Customer Reviews

A great return Ms. Torrini

This is a impressive follow up to Emilana's last album. Great smooth vocals that you can drift away to and entre another world of thought. Me and Armini is a catcy and different sound that makes it great! A great album :D

Her best record yet!

I thought her last album Fisherman's Woman would be hard to beat as it was a serious career highlight, BUT this new album Me And Armini is even more of a classic! Jungle Drum brought a big smile to my face and songs like Big Jumps and Me And Armini are instant, catchy tunes. The itunes bonus Wolf Song here is incredible too. Emiliana has made one of 2008s best albums!

Spellbinding

What a beautiful album, I heard the title song on Radio 1 late last night and came here straight away, it's all good!
