In one of the most unlikely comebacks in rock history, Brit folk-pop singer Vashti Bunyan released her sophomore album-- 35 years after her debut. After the indifferent initial response to her 1970 LP Just Another Diamond Day, a disheartened Bunyan left the music industry. Thakfully, following the a reissue of Diamond Day and recent guest appearances with Animal Collective, Devendra Banhart, and Piano Magic, Bunyan returns with Lookaftering, and it comes as a relief to hear not only how pristine her delicate vocals remain but that she has retained her understated abilities as a songwriter. This album represents the full-fledged reawakening of a still-vital talent, ready to cast aside her decades-long artistic hibernation and re-ignite her creative fires, and a wistful, measured reflection upon the long-ago daydreams of Diamond Day.
