The Spell of a Vanishing Loveliness — Cornelius

New Cornelius albums are few and far between. In fact, he has released just four albums in the past 21 years. But when one comes, it is always one of the highlights of the year. He is one of the most distinctive and innovative artists going.

I have just listened to his latest album, Mellow Waves. This song isn’t the most sonically interesting on the album — but it is probably the best. It’s the only song on the album to feature mainly English lyrics, written and sung by Miki Berenyi, who was the singer in Lush.

  1. I loved Point, but I struggled to really get into this album. You have encouraged me to give it a second go. I did enjoy the NPR Tiny Desk concert though.

  2. Thanks for the comment Aaron. Point is a masterpiece, although I think Sensuous is his best album. I’m not yet sure how I think Mellow Waves compares to his previous albums, but I am enjoying it. I wasn’t aware of the NPR concert – I must check it out.
