In the Seams, the upcoming LP from Saint Saviour (aka British songwriter Becky Jones), closes with “St. Malo,” a mythical-sounding track alluding to Saint-Malo, the walled port city in Brittany, France. “Take me walking if you go/ Round the walls of Saint-Malo,” Jones sings gently with light harmonies behind her. The track’s unwavering acoustic guitar foundation is hypnotizing, and is enhanced by faint piano toward the end. The minimalness is haunting and effective.
