Ted Barnes 'Portal Now' now. He's a man is Ted, a man's man. But he don't make music for truckers. Oh no. He makes intriguing junk shop honky tonk neo classical cinematic folk music out of bits of string & baby elephants. Then he splices it all up on his mega ACME bomp-rock machine and presses the sonic flange button and.....hey presto! A load of slightly wistful sound from a byegone era starts licking your earlobes! The second tune has female vocals that make you feel like you're in a really old B&W flick watching a brokenhearted lady part from her estranged lover, it's very lovely stuff and she has the most pure voice indeed! He's got lots of ideas & influences definitely, flecks of Waitsian doom, gypsy folk & homely Parisian cafe jazz, like a cheerier Rachels the boys agree. Its quite difficult to sum up as a whole but it's a cool little diversion is this CD and he even ropes Beth Orton in for one track. So, many moods over the course of 14 quite charming tracks. I need to spend some more time with this album!
