Lou Rhodes
One Good Thing

[March 15; Motion Audio]

The first release to come from Jason Swinscoe of The Cinematic Orchestra’s new imprint Motion Audio, a partnership with distributors Ninja Tune, One Good Thing is the third solo album from Lamb frontwoman Lou Rhodes, and the successor to the Mercury Prize nominated Beloved One. In the intervening years, Rhodes has endured some perspective-altering hardships that manifest themselves in these songs, most notably the grief following the death of her sister which pours into ‘Janey’, but the album has moments of levity too; the title track is about looking for the incidental happenings that can raise a smile even when things look unremittingly bleak.
