Elizabeth Fraser

Sun’s Signature

The magical voice of Elizabeth Fraser has once again joyfully emerged.

Her band Cocteau Twins broke up in 1997 and we haven’t heard new music from her in years.

Teaming with Damon Reece, (the drummer of Massive Attack, Spiritualized and Echo and Bunnymen among others) they call themselves Sun’s Signature.

Expect a 5 song EP on June 18th on Record Store Day which includes this song “Golden Air”.

Star Slinger and Cocteau Twins

Star Slinger is the electronic project of Darren Williams, producer, musician, DJ and remixer, from Manchester. He recently remixed “Heaven or Las Vegas” by Cocteau Twins into a ethereal dreamy new song.

Elizabeth Fraser began my very first podcast on this site and I make no effort to disguise my love for her voice and her work with Cocteau Twins. So this remix by Star Slinger is a welcome addition to her oeuvre.

Star Slinger makes all of his music free on his website but you can also donate. He entitles this remix as “Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins Rework)” which is the Song of the Day.

Elizabeth Fraser/Cocteau Twins

Thinking of Elizabeth Fraser, the artist who begins Podcast #1, one Sunday evening while I was hosting my new music show “Nocturnal Emissions” on WBCN, Cocteau Twins came to visit. All three: Liz, Robin Guthrie and Simon Raymond. During a break in the interview, I played a number of my favorite CT songs back-to-back, which they found fascinating, as the concept of a segue on UK radio was nonexistent. Elizabeth’s voice was oh-so gentle and delicate.

From my collection here is a signed CD Single Boxed Set.
