- Relic by Emma Tricca
I’m sure I’ve seen Emma Tricca in concert playing her sweet acoustic based songs. But where? When? Who with? How? I have no idea. This is a very nice album of melancholic folky singer songwriter-dom which could have easily been made in the years before my birth (and I’m very old indeed). Early 70’s folky types spring to mind but the record has a mystical 60’s air with eerie found sounds and organ tones augmenting the stripped back arrangements.
Tricca was discovered by Andy Votel and Jane Weaver and her songs perfectly fit into their retro-fetishic revivalist schtick. This is simple pure music that recalls the tie-dye folk of Linda Perhacs or Vashti Bunyan, primarily based around rolling guitar chords but like the music of Nick Drake, very subtle embellishments are added, taking care not to jar the becalmed atmosphere. Perfect coffee shop singer songwriter stuff with some dreamy arrangement, consistent but possibly lacking that killer song to make it stand out from the thousands of others doing a similar. Still a lovely way to spend a half hour or so.
