Das Hawk A Hacksaw are back with their 5th album! Cervantine is the first release on their own catchily titled LM Duplication label. The CD's look pretty sweet in nice foldy out style Letterpress looking packaging. Nice! They're out folking themselves here on this album with this pretty much taking every folk style on board (Spanish, Mexican, Romanian, Yugoslavian & Greek!). That's a lot of different styles of folk to blend into a coherent album but if there's troupe of loons who can do it, it's A Hawk & A Hacksaw. The album features Chris & Stephanie Hldadowski again, respectively on bouzouki and vocal duties. Chris you may know as being in The Family Elan (who's last album we gave album of the week to) and Stephane has had a 10" out on Singing Knives). The songs are chirpy and lively but they're not as stick in your mind as Delivrance. But the way all differing styles of global folk music are blended is astonishing and it's really 2nd to none. I can't think of anyone out there doing this and if there is anyone I'm reasonably sure they're not doing it half as well as these guys (and gals!). If you get the chance to see them live then do go as I saw them live twice on the last tour and they're a riot!
