Themed around the poetry of William Soutar (1898-43) spanning an agelessness that chimes, singer-songwriter Debra Salem inhabits the words and the songs completely flow. Guitarist Kevin MacKenzie and pianist Paul Harrison, violinist/violist/cellist Patsy Reid, bassist Andrew Robb and percussionist Signy Jakobsdóttir join Salem. There's a sense of wonder throughout that's nurtured and set free. Recommended

The album title means ''the water tower'' and the title track comes first of the three tracks (the others are linguistic variants of 'The Thorn Bush'). It's surprising how naturalistic these words are but make no mistake the musical style is very abstract. Invigorating avant sounds in brief from the Oslo-based saxophonist Signe Krunderup Emmeluth and drummer Kresten Osgood (known for his work with Masabumi Kikuchi) in a live recording made at the Koncertkirken in Copenhagen last summer. Emmeluth, top, also has solo sax recording Hi Hello I’m Signe featuring 'Action Painting en Vogue' out via the Relative Pitch label. If you're into Mopomoso flock to this. Out now from Norway's Motvind Records
