8/10 Daoud 23 September 2019

I hope when I finally decide to move to a Buddhist monastery in Nova Scotia that me and my friends make an album as joyful and pleasant as ‘Abundance Welcoming Ghosts’. David Morris, the Red River Dialect’s songwriter, got to eo just that.

This whole record is full of charming and quaint folk-rock that nonetheless manages to soar. The instrumentation is wonderful, in particular the melodic violin playing that adds lots of colour texture. The strummed guitars are energetic and warm and the drums are produced in such a way that gives them the familiarity of a heart beat. Even the piano on, ahem, ‘Piano’ can't help but seem homey.

Morris does what I can best describe as a “UK folk voice”, you know the sort of thing that wouldn’t go amiss in the original Wickerman film. That voice singing about how Snowden is “the closest point in Wales to heaven” gives the record such rural charm you’d swear you were in some obscure country pub.

The songs vary from elating balls (‘Salvation’) to jaunty dance numbers (‘My Friend’), and even some more introspective (‘Slow Rush’). But whatever Red River Dialect are doing, it’s always united by a warmth and a welcome that makes this an album that is a delight to listen to, and one that will be a delight to revisit.
