Mark McCambridge paid his dues as a touring singer/songwriter until early 2013 when he decided to record and tour under the name Aborrist. After a support slot with James Yorkston, his stock grew and he was invited to support such mighty acts as Low, Cat Power, Mark Mulcahy and Alasdair Roberts. He greatest moment surely came, however, when none other than the legendary Kim Deal agreed to sing a duet with him. Twisted Arrow is that song, and you can get it on 7” single.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 May 2015
How did Arborist get Kim Deal to sing with him on this 7”? Buy her a knitting kit? Thump Black Francis in the jowels? Anyway he must be super happy with the results as his lilting violin-led piece of melancholy has that extra bit of class to it...must be to do with Deal’s glassy vocals sitting just under the mix. Deal or no Deal this is a very nice tune indeed.
Overleaf there’s a lower fi type thing that sounds somewhat like Villagers and is a nice if standard piece of singer songwriter fluff ....but the A side is truly special.
