Prior to Some Place Simple, her two solo albums are the Mercury-nominated Quixotic, and the Danger Mouse production The Blue God. Her collaborators range from Common, to Diplo, to Leila. Still, whilst Martina might need no such introduction in this context, her debut album for Honest Jon's is a radical departure. Equally, although Some Place Simple presents a kind of songbook, combining brand new compositions with old favourites, everything here sounds fresh - intimate and alive, uncovered
Martina Topley Bird's third solo album came about after Damon Albarn encouraged her to record simplified new versions of songs from her first two records, Quixotic, and the Danger Mouse-produced The Blue God. While the originals were hardly drowning in excessive production, Topley Bird has pared them back further still, removing nearly all the flesh from their bones and leaving just the melody lines, her airy voice and jolts of electric piano, drum machine and tambourine. Many of the reinventions are wholly stunning
