Posted on

Sea Sew‘s cover art, depicting Lisa Hannigan’s handiwork, reflects the homespun intimacy of the Irish singer’s debut. She’s got a strong track record as a backing vocalist with Damien Rice, Herbie Hancock, and Snow Patrol, and her whispery, confiding voice makes this the perfect album for cozying up by the fire on a winter-chilled Sunday afternoon.
