PJ Harvey and John Parish 

A Woman A Man Walked By (Island)

In 1996 PJ Harvey collaborated with friend John Parish to release Dance Hall At Louse Point---songs with Parish providing the music and Harvey the lyrics and vocals. It was a discordant, occasionally vicious record---a side-project that fit nicely into Harvey's body of work. This new album has the same division of labour, but is a little sweeter, with Harvey's White Chalk-esque, weedy falsetto featured on a couple of tracks. Fans of the singer's angrier material will lap up the title track and its "I want your fucking ass" refrain, the first single "Black Hearted Love" and the loopy, compulsive "Sixteen, Fifteen, Fourteen."
