8/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 May 2014
This was a Record Store Day item that appeared just a little too late for us to tell anyone about. Its an album of lovely folk music by a 'supergroup' of Fence types and related Scottish brethren. James Yorkston, Slow Club, Pictish Trail, King Creosote are just some of the names involved. What we get is an extremely varied album as each singer tends to take lead on their own material so what you end up is a smorgasboard of sounds that are wildly different but fit together nicely. It opens with one of the finest songs I've heard this year, I've not been a massive fan of King Creosote up until this point but here he excels on an insanely catchy piece of banjo led folky goodness. His voice is a glorious, youthful thing. You won't get it out of your head - I'm warning you. When the melody re-appears and the gorgeous instrumental 'Future Divorces' later in the album its almost as good.
James Yorkston sings lead on 'Honey on Thigh' and it sounds like......James Yorkston. 'Nothing' is a grandiose piece of folk led by the wonderfully monikered Lomond Campbell, mixed up in all this folky loveliness are a couple of tracks of eastern meditations by sanghari player Suhail Kusuf Khan. A lovely record that will be enjoyed by fans of the Eastern seaboard of Fife based folk. Comes with a fanzine too!
