Karla Kane “King’s Daughters Home For Incurables” – Listen

Californian Karla Kane unleashes a veritable storm of melodic whimsy on this ukulele led new folk-song that celebrates a mythical world of English folk whilst admitting that “I wanted to be an English folk singer / A new Shirley Collins, the next Cecil Sharp”.  Quick as a fox, though, she turns the song in a different direction “A terrible troll lived up in his tower / Surrounded by minions who couldn’t say no” before reflecting that “I don’t know if this machine can kill fascists / but maybe annoying them’s alright for now”.
