Here's the brand new North Sea Radio Orchestra album. I was a massive fan of the last one. I've only heard this new one once so far (it's only just arrived) but it sounds good from what I've heard so far. Brian immediately parped up it sounds a bit like Fairport Convention. I can hear a bit of that in there for sure. There's definitely a massive folk influence throughout the record. It's an enticing mix of classical orchestration, folk and toytown electronics all thrown together to make a thoroughly charming sounding record. The vocals are completely delicious (as they were on the last one) and it's quintessentially (I just had to...) the most English sounding record you'll ever hear. It could be a soundtrack to a long forgotten British cult film classic. It's really good anyway. That much I do know.
