As I was buying Watermark digitally yesterday, my colleague and fellow Enya fan Rory Gibb joked "sure you can't pick it up on Boomkat? They've loads of that sort of thing these days". And he's a point. I've actually been planning to write an In Defence Of Enya feature for the Quietus since the very day we started the site. For years, saying you liked Enya was enough to get you laughed out of town.
Recently, though, her implicit presence has been everywhere whether intentional or not. Or how about early Laurel Halo, Album), Julianna Barwick, Grouper; even new Burial track 'Rival Dealer' has an Enya passage, as if his night bus had got lost up a country lane.
