    Fans of Anda Jaleo will immediately warm to this ten-song set.

    Perlas is a lovely, understated album, sure in its stride but happy to wander, and somehow peaceable and playful, even as the songs hymn broken hearts.

    It's undoubtedly an acquired taste, and you can't imagine actually wanting to listen to it all that much, but there's definitely much to admire here.

    This simple, heart-achingly evocative album brings a contemporary approach whilst observing the traditions of the rich mine of Spanish musical culture.

    Foster's voice sounds as beautifully eerie as ever; imagine a ghost from a Deep South 78 brought back from the dead. Little else here, however, sounds avant-garde. [Jun 2012, p.101]
  6. The most compelling Spanish album I've heard in ages.

    Perlas is debonair, contemporary and redolent of that old seductive charge. [Mya 2012, p.58]

    There is a natural grace to these compositions that's difficult to deny.
