On The Salted Air, Beirut-born singer Nadine Khouri has written up a pocket-sized book of lullabies, and gothic shanties, whose sounds and lyrics evoke a series of wondrous daydreams and sorrowful, mood-filled, late-night tales. Muted, soft palleted drums and gently plucked ukuleles, combine with piping organs, screaming from the depths of the deepest oceans, all tied together by Khouri's softly-worded and temperate voice. Likened to Mazzy Star, the London-based singer has been haunting British folk-singer venues for some time, but she didn't come to winder notice until being picked up by part-time PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, and featured on his Screenplay LP in 2013.
