Susanna Wallumrød has one of those impossibly luminous voices that sound even more impressive when backed by only the barest of production, dramatically slowed down and pared back to its most basic, raw essentials. That special approach serves her choice of covers well, whether she's transforming "Love Will Tear Us Apart" or here with "Jailbreak," the Thin Lizzy classic written by the late Phil Lynott. Plucked from her album Flower of Evil, "Jailbreak" features backing from Will (Bonnie Prince Billy) Oldham but we're also fond of the live video version with just her own piano accompaniment. Click through below to watch along with "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Susanna released her own adventurous baroque/pop album The Forester last month.
