PJ Harvey – Dry-Demos
This is the orginal demo recordings of every track from the album dry, including ”Dress” and ”Sheela-Na-Gig”, available for the first time since 1992.
”With her voice competing mostly only with acoustic guitar on ”Dry – Demos”, the way she takes the Biblical story of Mary of Bethany cleaning Jesus’ feet with her hair on “Joe” makes a line like “Lay my enemies out in lines/Come in close and I’ll wash your feet/With my hair I’d mop them dry” stick out in a way it didn’t on Dry’s funk-metal miasma. On their own, the words could also easily fit on her more musically restrained works like Is This Desire? or Let England Shake.” (source: rollingstone.com)
