After an extended break, the best band you’ve never heard of returned last year with an excellent new studio album, Anastasis . This live collection (their second) is culled from last year’s tour and features five tracks from the current album plus some judicious picks from the pack catalogue. This is beautiful music, wide-screen yet intimate as the duo hurl excellence upon excellence in their own understated way. There’s a classical core but contemporary flourishes aplenty here to produce a beguiling and entrancing effect. All topped off by a sublime cover of Tim Buckley’s Song for the Siren .
