at the age of 27, patrick wolf releases his fifth album, 'lupercalia', a work packed full of sweeping orchestration, surges of positive sentiment and oodles of commercial potential. critics have described it as 'immaculate' and 'a triumph of romanticism', which isn't bad for an album that features ukulele and has such an unapologetically erudite name (for those of you without a classics degree, 'lupercalia' was the forerunner to valentine's day: an ancient pastoral festival intended to avert evil spirits and release fertility). 'lupercalia' is a hugely confessional album and documents his experience of falling deeply in love with the man he is about to marry.
