French praise for Jessica Sligter

Very nice write-up on Jessica Sligter from Jazz Magazine (FR):
“The french release of this Tinker Bell coming from Oslo sheds a light upon a magnificent craftswoman of (twisted) folk music. She comes from Holland but lives in Norway. She released three records, but they haven’t been distributed in France. Her name is Jessica Sligter, but also Jæ or Sacred Harp. We don’t know a lot much about her but we don’t care, as her music fits perfectly mystery and silence. Thanks to the always inspiring label Hubro, we discover a kind of PJ Harvey who traded its punk roots for the fresh air of Scandinavia. Or a Julia Holter who prefers acoustic instruments over analog synthesizers. Or better: a millennial Meredith Monk or an anti-folk Liz Fraser. Our heart chooses the first album, very emotional, and full of ideas (Balls and Kittens, Draught and strangling Rain), even if the two others have plenty of qualities, we have to choose. Because in life, we always have to choose – Mathieu Durand”
