|Adam Pickering - The Daydream Club|
Adam Pickering and Paula Walker are the couple responsible for both music and dreams, and it was the latter who brought us into their set with tribal rhythmic percussion. Sometimes though it is what she does without instrument in hand that catches the eye and spirit. On The Move was a delicate rounded shape in both their hands, it talked of circles and hollows, holes and rings. Walker's hands turned as she sang, as though tenderly mixing a salad of foraged leaves in an invisible bowl.

The finale of their set was Found which roused the packed audience from any reverie, the words sparkier than their sentiment for once. That is not to say warmth was relegated to a bit part, in fact it was affection which took the plaudits and applause at the end.
