TOW on 6 Music - Agnes Obel and Saint Saviour

Every week TOW plays two songs for the brilliant Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 Music Introducing show... here are our picks from this week's show:

Agnes Obel - Close Watch 

Danish singer-songwriter Agnes Obel's startlingly beautiful cover of John Cale's 1983 track I Keep A Close Watch, from her debut album Philharmonics released in October last year on PIAS. She's new to TOW, yes ok... we're a bit slow on the uptake sometimes...! Download the track for free here:

Saint Saviour - The Other Woman

You'll have to listen again to Tom's show to hear Becky Jones' AKA Saint Saviour's stunning cover of Nina Simone's The Other Woman. The singer-songwriter and Groove Armada frontwoman recorded the version especially for The Other Woman Podcast. Listen again to our lovely interview with Becky (and that track) here:
