Affecting, contemporary, and experimental in parts, Martin Green has put together a unique blend of folk music and the unknown. Featuring some absolutely incredible guests from groups including Portishead, Mogwai, The Unthanks, Arab Strap, and Lau. Not really many rules here, and that’s great fun… well, it is.
8/10 Paul Hay Customer review, 3rd February 2017
Composer and member of Lau, Martin Green has produced this interesting album about migration and how people choose to move over the world forced or otherwise.This is his latest recording project, Flit, with Adam Holmes and Becky Unthank complimenting each other on vocals and Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai on bass alongside Adrian Utley of Portishead on guitar this album has great pedigree. When you employ the songwriter skills of Karine Polwart, Sandy Wright, Anais Mitchell and Aidan Moffat then this becomes an album with substance. Don't be fooled by the opening track - The Living Wind - which is spoken by Aidan Moffat of Arab Strap fame His unmistakable accent gives you a very emotional delivery.This album is pure folk music and has many textures to it. It is genre crossing and certainly would not be mainstream music. The vocal harmonies between Adam and Becky work. The track listings are as follows:. 1.The Living Wind 2,Strange Sky 3. Wrackline 4. Roll Away 5. The Suitcase 6. Laws of Motion 7. Clang Song 8. Smallest Plant 9. The Singing Sands
