iTunes Review

These songs and remixes come from the EPs that Tracey Thorn released over a 12-month span. The milky-voiced chanteuse from Everything but the Girl opens with an arresting cover of Vampire Weekend’s “Taxi Cab”; her deep inflections hover above rudimentary rhythm sequences, spare synthesizers, and an electric piano that all endearingly sound a bit like a karaoke machine. English electronic music producer Ewan Pearson gives the version of Thorn’s own “Why Does the Wind?” a clean radio edit to keep it under the four-minute mark. There are a few other remixes of this tune; the standout is by Michel Cleis, who eschews trendy house throwback tones for a minimal layering of tribal drums and sweeping strings under Thorn’s singing. The heady “Kentish Town” gets a gauzy redesign by WALLS, in which krautrock-inspired drones pulse lightly against Brian Eno-esque tones and looped snippets of Thorn’s vocals. Her heavenly take on Sufjan Stevens’ “Sister Winter” is another brilliant gem.

It Was A Good Year

Stellar output from Tracey Thorn -- half or Everything But The Girl. Great remixes and covers make for a fantastic year end collection. You Are a Lover tops as one of the years best remixes.
Look forward to the long rumored Everything But The Girl "comeback" album.

Absolutely amazing vocals!

Tracey Thorn has one of the best voices in the business! A true, pure, and uncovered vocal is extremely hard to come by today...Please tell me that ETBG will return soon!

Around that time, she met Ben Watt -- who was also signed to Cherry Red -- and formed a partnership as Everything But...
