I Just Want To Sit Here And Watch You Undress

PJ Harvey turned up at The Vinyl Villain yesterday and I’d been meaning to post this since before my computer went down. I haven’t got anything like all of Polly’s albums but I’m content to drop in and out and recently played her 2000 album Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea, an album inspired by New York that famously won the always slightly pointless Mercury Prize. This Is Love is my favourite song off it, direct, upfront and confident from the off with a driving Stooges, Heartbreakers guitar riff and that attention grabbing opening couplet. There isn’t any doubt evident here, Polly knows exactly what she’s feeling and exactly what she wants.
