10/10 Garrett Customer review, 3rd April 2009
For the love of music! Not too many labels still put out music...for the love of music. And that's why Lanarkshire
based Chaffinch Records is such a little gem. Releasing various artists EP's, and a little EP by a nobody artist named Anthony Reynolds (Jack!!!), these guys might not be making a huge splash, but they definitely deserve your attention. The Whisper is a 7" vinyl EP limited to only 500 copies. Lucky Luke is the first of the 4 artists that show up on this EP. The price of the EP would be worth it for the slow and haunting "Please Bomb Slough" alone. A very talented and understated band. King Creosote's "6 Ups and Over" sounds like an obscure folkish jam, with vocals filtered to the background as acoustic guitars and brushed drums dominate the soundscape. "Something Inside" by South Downs bleeds of its influence. An endearing cross between Paul McCartney and Elliott Smith echoes through the air, as lo-fi melodic drones fill out the remaining headspace. The fourth and final artist to contribute to this EP is Immigrant, with "The Violet Flame". Featuring an organ as the song's base, a dry tenor sleepily follows a monotone melody to its bitter end.
For those serious indie music lovers, you should become familiar with Chaffinch Records. They put out
music that's worth your while.
