Tiny Ruins has teamed up with Hamish Kilgour, who you might know from The Clean. The two New Zealanders recorded this collection of songs in New York, matching one another on guitars and percussion, Tiny Ruins’s heavy drawl giving things a great mood. Includes a late-night street field recording and two settings of W.B. Yeats poems. 12” on Bella Union.
7/10 Tim Young Customer review, 20th December 2015
I've loved Tiny Ruins since I first heard her debut album 'Some Were Made For Sea' based on someone describing her as some kind of modern Nick Drake - a comparison that actually holds some weight in my ears. Her songwriting holds lots of quirky observations and her beautiful voice never becomes tiring.
As for this release - I guess it's one of those EPs made to fill the gap between albums as it doesn't really contain a particular stand out track. It's perfect background listening while I paint or cook and I'll be happy to add it to the collection. If you are new to Tiny Ruins this isn't the place to start (go for one of the albums) but once you've fallen for her you'll want it.
