Welsh singer/songwriter Cate Le Bon’s understated and modest third album, Mug Museum, is in part a lament to the erosion of memories, all told with remarkable detail. These are small, graceful songs with deceptive amounts of depth, due in no small part to the circumstances surrounding writing the album. While in Wales last winter just as Le Bon was ready to move on from her 2012 album CYRK, her maternal grandmother died. The songs on Mug Museum were written during that time of reacclimation after grief, as Le Bon struggled with her loss and how affected her maternal role in her family. Le Bon navigates these uncertainties with both poise and a kind of performed confidence, like someone just pushed her out on to the stage from the wings.

It’s not entirely clear, on a first listen to Cate Le Bon’s new album, why she relocated to LA to record it. After all, this is an artist whose first release was sung in Welsh, and who recorded her debut album in Cardiff (with equipment borrowed from Super Furry Animals). Perhaps for her third record she needed those pesky palm trees and the oppressively chirpy wholegrain sunshine as a foil to her dogged Welsh sombreness.
