Editors’ Notes

On This Coming Gladness, Josephine Foster reaches new heights in her attempts to embody the spirits of traditional folk and old-fashioned parlor music. Her uniquely haunting voice is suggestive of a bewitched old woman as she combines British strains with operatic overtones. The effect is uncanny, at once chaste and sensuous, serene and ominous. With sympathetic backup provided by guitarist Victor Herrero and drummer Alex Nielson, she rides the slithering melody of “The Lap of Your Lust,” drowses over the delicate verse of “Waltz of Green” and coos through the elegant atmosphere of “Indelible Rainbows.” Foster has a strong affinity for pre-modern idioms, but in “All I Wanted was the Moon” she reveals a link with classic pop balladry as well. The depth of her sincerity and feeling comes through in exotically romantic numbers like “The Garden of Earthly Delights” and “A Thimbleful of Milk.” At times unnerving but ultimately captivating, This Coming Gladness is a rare pleasure to hear.
