Epic45 man Eric Heath returns with another slice of pastoral beauty in the form of 'Shropshire Hill Country', a collection of songs that reflect on Eric Heath's adventures meeting country folks and playing gigs in Shropshire and the surrounding counties of Powys, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire. Now you'll have some idea of what to expect if you've ever heard Epic45 (which I'm pretty sure you have...the Shropshire Hood is what I call 'em...'cause that's what they are) and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Heath has a keen ear for melody and can invoke the atmosphere of the Shropshire countryside with ease. This is the part of the world that I'm from and it's making a little nostalgic for the area (little tear for my youth). Heath has taken it upon himself to learn the lost arts of the mandolin and accordion which adds an additional layer of authenticity to the sounds here. Sampling, multi-tracking, found sounds and other modern technologies play a fundamental role in much the same way it does with Epic45's material but as a general rule it's used to enhance the rural folksiness of the music. Oh, It comes with maps, stickers and laminated leaves.
