Anna Kashfi take their name from Marlon Brando's tragic wife from 1957, they also play dreamy, melancholic music that crackles with memomries of past mistakes, missed oppurtunities and the emotional games played by lovers in battle. "Procurement" is a stunning album that moves from stately ballads through late-night laments to droning psychedelic folk is eerie and gentle in equal measure: This is the point at which English folk, modern Americana, and Klezmer traditions come together to create a sound that is familiar and comforting yet opaque and elusive. Contains a simply killer version of the Bad Seeds' "The Mercy Seat". For fans of Sparklehorse, Mazzy Star, Giant Sand, Tarnation etc...Central to the bands sound are the vocals of Sian Webley which capture the fragility and poise of a modern day Beth Gibbons and Hope Sandoval. The songs are underpinned by elegant and textural arrangements by co-writer James Younjohns, shunning modern isntrumentation in favour of an array of the antique, unusual and just plain bizarre. Violins rest against washes of feedback, peda lsteel wraps itself around mellotron tape loops, a baroque viola d'amore floats alongside sampled electric guitar sounds.
