The Family Elan release a new album out this week courtesy of those nice folks at Alt Vinyl. If the name doesn't ring a bell then let me enlighten you... They had an album out previously on the rather ace Locust label and the band consists of Chris Hladowski (has played with Hawk & A Hacksaw, Nalle, Ashtray Navigations. Daniel Padden and probably more I'm too tired to list) and Hanna Tuulikki who is otherwise known as Nalle (albums on Picked Egg & Locust!). With her voice and his knowledge of eastern European folk instruments they make a vintage folk cacophony which would please anyone with two ears and a brain. I never heard the debut but on the strength of this one I'd say it's worth checking out as well. There's a very medieval folk feel to this with the flute and bouzouki being ever present. Mind you the tablas on track 5 (I can't read the writing on the back... bloody medieval folk writing) add another dimension to it. 'Bow Low Bright Glow' is good. I like it. I think you will too if you're into traditional Eastern European folk. The vinyl is packaged in a great shiny lino sleeve which you can't help but rub until your finger prints are no more. An excellent listen from start to end!!
