“No Sacrifice” is a soundtrack to bittersweet frustration. A wish fulfilled and a slow coming to terms with the basic pleasure-pain principle, amid the clamour to have it all. We listen transfixed as its hypnotic organ, ukulele and shaker drone reiterates, “Burn me in life’s bouquet / so I can sip so sweet / feed me my paradise and leave me nothing / no sacrifice”.
