Trembling Bells
Dungeness

I just can't get over the sleeve. Just look at it. Kind of suits the music Trembling Bells make though. It's shot through with the folk influence of bands who also wore 17th century garb and claimed a kinship with days of yore. I'm thinking Fairport Convention. But Trembling Bells are also very psychedelic. You'...view item »

Trembling Bells
The Sovereign Self

Their fifth album in six years, The Sovereign Self by Trembling Bells continues down the traditionalist path that the band ploughs so well. From motorik kraut to wig-out prog and freak-folk it’s a heady stew of influences, twisting and turning at every step. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Tin Angel....view item »

Trembling Bells / Alex Rex
The Auld Triangle

Like a sort of raggle-taggle version of Band Aid, Scottish folk minstrels Trembling Bells have hauled a pile of their famous friends into the studio to sing this song much beloved of drunks. Alasdair Roberts, Ricky Ross (really?) , Dan Haywood, Mike Heron, Scott Fagan and Amy Cutler all len...view item »

Trembling Bells & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford

After collaborating on The Marble Downs Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Trembling Bells went on tour in 2012. The Bonnie Bells Of Oxford is a live album trying to capture the magic of their collaboration including hybrid versions of tracks from each artist, as well as many tracks from the...view item »

Trembling Bells
Carbeth

To have sprawling, gibbering kudos from both Ben Chasny & Bonnie Billy on yr press release is usually enough to ensure that the neo-folk crate digging brigade are out in force. You should check out Trembling Bells if you've not already. It's not that i'm a complete folk ignoramus but i'm stuck for words with this bunch as the music is utterly t...view item »

Trembling Bells
Wide Majestic Aire

Wide Majestic Aire is a ‘mini-album’, containing 7 songs-worth of Trembling Bells’ grounded-but-adventurous folk-rock. A sense of place is crucial to this record: as well as Yorkshire, signified by the River Aire (which happens to be spitting-distance from Norman Records, fact-fans!), Oxford, London, a...view item »

Trembling Bells, Bonnie Prince Billy, Muldoon's Picnic
The Duchess EP

Trembling Bells (featuring Bonnie Prince Billy)
The Marble Downs

I'm not a huge fan of Trembling Bells but cannot deny they are indeed a gifted bunch of mistrals. Having Mister Billy on board has proved to be  more than compatible on previous releases and is no exception on this full length. Everyone is in good form, some of Oldham's recent ventur...view item »

Trembling Bells / Bonnie Prince Billy / Mike Heron
New Year’s Eve’s The Loneliest Night Of The Year / Feast Of Stephen

It may have escaped your notice but it's Christmas soon and the rush for underground types to release their Christmas songs has started in earnest. Here are retro folky clan Trembling Bells accompanied by Bonnie Prince Billy and Mike Heron (Incredible String Band) with a strong contender for the most 'Fairytale of New York' a-like ballad ye...view item »

Trembling Bells
The Constant Pageant

I'm the only one who likes Trembling Bells here. They all think Lavinia Blackwell's startlingly hearty, tremulous & powerful range recalls the kind of "shitting out the window" folk which you equate with Aran jumpers, beards & real ale. Which is bollocks. There's something undeniably piercing about the outer reaches of her vocal chor...view item »

Trembling Bells
Abandoned Love

Trembling Bells return with another record, this time on the lovely Honest Jon's label (I thought it was a re-issue label but there you go...). Abandoned Love sees the group expand on there Fairport Convention/Bonnie Prince Billy/Irish folk formula with muchos enthusiasm. I'm not a big fan of this sort of thing but it's obvious that trembling Be...view item »
