The Magic + The Deep Field

Joan As Police Woman is back: I've literally been waiting to hear about this for eight months. You know when you've been listening to old records by someone whose music you love, and you look back realising it's been two five years since they were made? Yeah, that's where I was getting with Joan Wasser.

She's got a richness to her voice that powers her own brand of soul-influenced and anecdotal music. Self-described as "punk rock R'n'B", it's a particular blend of ringing guitar tones, tinkling piano and emotive lyrics that are never, ever cheesy.

Anyone else who's been hungry for her new material will be so psyched to hear that album The Deep Field drops on January 24th. Pop in your email address for free downloads of 'The Magic' (below), 'Magpies' from To Survive, and 'The Ride' from Real Life.

She plays Brighton's Komedia on February 2nd , and The Barbican on February 6th.
