Enveloped in the tapestry.

I'm pretty sure you heard of Georgie James first here at the Smudge, back in April of 2006. The months since then have been kind to Georgie James, whose forthcoming Places is energetic pop magic with classic soul and jazz accents, but more importantly, you just can't listen to the album without singing along with Laura Burhenn's pitch perfection whilst air drumming. The songs from the Demos From Dance Place EP have more muscle on the album, with the guitar amped up a notch and more frequently soloed, and the drums attacking at every opportunity. Plus, there's this new treat, a song in which John Davis goes berserk on the drums, and what might be a guitar nod to Flock of Seagulls.
