It's review central this week and a week wouldn't be complete without a 3" CD from Rusted Rail to coo over. Directorsound is Nick Palmer, his 7 tracks here, housed prettily in one of those dinky greetings cards, are of a very gentle nature. A bass string thrums, a harp style affair is caressed, ambient drift forms the backdrop. That's the essence of the beautiful 'Do Geese see God' which is quite Rothko-ish in it's blissed majesty. Also reminds me a little of a track from that Kontinnent CD. 'Tuberose' sounds like it fell from the incidental music to Dead Man's Shoes, field recordings of cowbells before an acoustic guitar and accordian come out to play with possibly a toy trumpet or something (enlighten me Nick!) 'Weasil Chime/Ropes' has a wonderful Parisian cafe folk structure. His field recordings give each song a beautiful organic touch, leaving the instrumentation to be as brittle or sparse as it wants to be, these sketches breathe the outdoors, they sound like they're recorded in a small farmyard in the golden sun of a hazy afternoon whilst animals doze & the lightest breeze makes you sigh with contentment. 'Leaving The Moors' is as sweet as you like.
