Silence by PJ Harvey

“I decided almost as soon as I heard that TIMJ was being archived that this would be my final Jam. PJ has been a touchstone for me since 'Dry' - I suspect I'll never not listen to her. Although it's her least typical album, White Chalk is achingly beautiful, and this seemed an appropriate epitaph. Thanks @Han and @flaneur for a great ride.”

So much better than the album version. Polly Jean has my heart.

#womensweek Kicking off with someone who is very much a personal musical hero. Polly Jean Harvey is a songwriter of remarkable talent and creativity. Forever afraid of making the same album twice, everything she releases feels new, fresh and exciting. Picking one song out of her spectacular canon is not easy, but, given the theme, this ode to female sexuality (and the men who fear and repress it) feels apt.   8

This one is for my daughter who, after hearing it in the car, said: ' Turn it up, I'm not getting out until I hear it all...'   24
