The notes on the special edition of "TBYML & the Bsides" state that the instruments are harmonium, organ and keyboard

Mh, so it checks out with the box's notes. That sound is exquisite, so unique i've mistaken it for a jewel like an hurdy gurdy, PJ was really masterful with the harmonica here.Chef's kiss, really. Thank you for the answer.

You're welcome. I wouldn't have been able to pin down what it was myself, I'm not familiar with those types of instrument

Just for the avoidance of confusion, a harmonium and a harmonica are not the same thing (but easy to confuse in translation).
I only recently discovered myself that a harmonium looks like this. They are also known as pump organs because of the bellows on the back.

Rob played a harmonium on “Oh My Lover” and you can hear it most prominently at the end, though I think it comes in around the middle of the song. I believe there are other songs Polly’s played a harmonium on, but off the top of my head I can’t remember what they were. A lot of the time when she plays multiple keyboard instruments on a particular song, it’s difficult to discern which is which.

Ooooh, that's because i'm a bit dumb and surely ignorant: my eyes saw harmonium and my mind read harmonica, auto-translating it into the italian "fisarmonica" (=accordion, which is used by the PJ Harvey band in a live version of "hardly wait"-and it rocks too). Now i understand why it sounds unique. Thank you.
