8/10 Li'l Biz 25 June 2009
Ellen Mary McGee is a singer songwriter of Irish/Romany decent. 'Crescent Sun' is Ellen's first solo album following a stint in performing in irish folk outfit Saint Joan who made a few records for excellent australian label Camera Obscura. Two things worth mentioning; Ellen Mary McGee has a beautiful voice, so beautiful she could front The Chipmunks (step aside Alvin) and still reduce the crowd to a sobbing heap on the floor. Secondly, Ellen Mary McGee plays a very traditional style of folk music inspired by life, death, confusion, misery and (apparently) metaphysics. You can hear that the occasional modern touch has been added to the tracks on 'Crescent Sun' but for the most part the music revolves around an acoustic guitar, subtle strings and a single voice. It has all the elements you'd expect from a decent folk recording and is well worth a listen. Phil is particularly taken by 'Crescent Sun' and he is your god, so listen up yo! Also worth noting that this is out on Midwich Records, home of The Owl Service. Hell yeah!!!
