Now something I actually like. Not something I pretend to like but actually, y’know....like.
Nancy Wallace was in Owl Service who I’ve had to pretend to like a few times and was also in Memory Band who I do quite like. Originally from deepest rural Suffolk, she now resides in stinking Hackney but this hasn’t stopped the glorious rural folk simplicity of her recordings. ‘You Restless Skyline’ is simply superb, drawing on the 70’s folk revivalists such as Sandy Denny or Lal Waterson. She has a wonderfully pure voice and she accompanies it with lovely finger-picked acoustic guitar. It reminds me of the sea, the North-East coastline, Alnmouth on a windy day. Just glorious.
On the B side ‘Pockets’ is jauntier but no less affecting. I think I had better stop before I burst into tears. Heart-renderingly lovely stuff.
