An album that is “loaded with charm, playfulness and an unpredictable bent that keeps every song interesting,” it deserves a wider audience. The re release is also a specially mastered hi end release and Bombadil is set to tour for the bulk of 2014, so they’ll be able to give this magical album the support it initially deserved, and people will have the opportunity to hear what one writer called “a breakthrough and breakaway from a band whose ideas, enthusiasm, abilities and emotions have finally found their nexus.”

Right, well the vinyl of this looks lovely  - its kind of big  - what could possibly be in it? 14 art prints that's what AND a record. I don’t want to open it and spoil it for anyone so I’m listening to a few tracks on good old Youtube.

I guess its in the modern/nu folk bracket but its all done with a clattery sense of fun. Take Mumford and Sons as a starting point (but don't panic please stick with me here) take away the Pimms drinking/Glasto fake folkery  - make ‘em real, put them in a rickety old barn armed with a 4 track recorder, some battered acoustic guitars  a bunch of catchy songs and and don’t let them out 'til they’ve committed the thing to tape.

Result = great beer-sloshing, shout-along, home brewed catchy folk songs.
