Danish savante Agnes Obel is the latest to step up to bat for team Late Night Tales. Anyone familiar with Obel’s solo output will be expecting a brooding mix full of stuerm und drang, and the Dane certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front. She has put together a bewitching collection of tracks here. Henry Mancini’s skulking ‘The Evil Theme’ sets the tone perfectly for a selection that includes work from artists as disparate as Ray Davies, Nina Simone, Can and Alfred Schnittke. It is also studded with Obel originals and covers, allowing her to put her stamp on this beguiling record.
