Tara Jane O'Neil & Marisa Anderson "Polly" (Jealous Butcher)

Not Unloved has been blessed to witness both Tara Jane O'Neil and Marisa Anderson play spellbinding shows in Glasgow in recent years so it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that their collaborative 7" (forthcoming on Jealous Butcher Records) is nothing short of stunning. Their take on Dillard & Clark's divine "Polly" is something truly special. Even sparser than the original, Anderson's intimate guitar playing and O'Neil's hushed, beautiful singing combine to incredibly moving effect. Gene Clark occupies an exalted position round these parts so I don't say this lightly, but this version may be even more emotionally resonant than the original. Should I make it, I'll still be listening to this in 30 years.

The pre-order is now live here.
