In the unlikely event of Sunday Tabs ever giving away 'The Best Psychedelic-Folk Records Ever' CD, Emiliana Torrini's Sunny Road is a sure bet for track numero uno. To invoke the vernacular of one Jeremy Clarkson, if Sunny Road were hard furnishing, it would be blondewood.
Too ersatz to fly the freak flag higher than a Devendra Banhart, Torrini's little ditty is a kinda radio-friendly, EBTG versh of "this kind of stuff", but will still be a blessed relief from whatever this weeks fave guitar-totin' band is.
The standard alternative mixes on this single are actually not bad, with roots-reggae type Manasseh's echo-deck adding a suitably trippy dimension to the whole shebang. It has to be said though that Sunny Road won't do much for fans of Black Heart Procession or Rammstein.
