- Wild Geese by Haruko
9/10 Phil Staff review, 25 June 2009It's rare a singer songwriter album will blow your socks off. It does happen but they're far and few between. This Haruko LP/ CD (the CD is housed in a 12" vinyl sleeve!) on Bracken records is one of said sock blowing off records and I'm now sat barefoot wondering where the fuck my socks are. Haruko is a lady called Susanne Stanglow who currently lives in Germany and there she recorded this album at home over a 3 week period. Throughout the 10 tracks on 'Wild Geese' you'll be treated to some beautifully crafted simple songs which leave their hooks in crippling the ability for any other song to get into your head (until you hear some annoying shite on the radio.... and then you'll want to smash your radios face off). Susanne's voice is delicate and frail, and it's daubed over the guitar plucking with such simplicity you'll be weeping like a baby in no time. I'm not sure what to write about this album to be honest as I think the music just speaks for itself. Fans of early Cat Power will like this as it's not a million miles away from Chan Marshall's earlier more sparse recordings. It's thoroughly delightful and I can see this appearing on a lot of folks end of years lists. That is if they get a hold of one as there's only 300 vinyls pressed so I wouldn't dawdle if you're unsure!!
10/10 Martin Customer review,
What Phil said!!! I'll eat his socks (if they can be found) if it's not on several people's year lists... Amazing album and one of the best vocal recs since Parplar... Go get it
