50 Words For Snow, the tenth studio album from the peerless Kate Bush, gets reissued just in time for the Winter solstice. Though not as well-known as her all-conquering ‘80s output, 50 Words For Snow is a late-period masterpiece from the art-pop auteur. Backed by a chamber jazz ensemble who treat her arrangements with a deft touch, here Bush works through intimate songs that take in ye-ye, post-rock and the post-jazz sound of groups like Portico Quartet. Cuts like ‘Snowed In At Wheeler Street’ bring back some of the old bombast.
