The Unthanks

Big thank you to for introducing me to this incredible group.


  1. I thought you'd like them! The new album, where the Unthank sisters Rachel and Becky have merged, is even better (although maybe more commercial). The title song, 'Here's the Tender Coming', haunts me - the tender being the boat that would come to collect the pressed seamen, back in the eighteenth century. It all makes me think again of a certain unfinished tale about a Melodeon man, who got pressed, perhaps, by a mermaid ...

  2. Ha, ha. Okay, I'll finish it!

  3. the title. "Don't keep the mermaid waiting."
