A little information on my latest CD review for folking.com.
Not here – I haven’t done any reviews for this site so far – but for Folking.com: HAT FITZ & CARA – After The Rain
An interesting modern blues duo based in Australia. Cara Robinson takes most of the vocals (and very good she is too), and plays (on this album, anyway) ‘vintage drums’ and washboard. Hat takes lead vocals on a couple of tracks and plays electric guitar, resonator guitar, and mandolin. Excellent songs.
I once wrote a couple of chapters for a book edited by a hacker who sometimes called himself Hat. I don’t think Hat Fitz is the same bloke, though. 🙂
Sadly, Bap Kennedy died a few days, before his final album was due to be released. (It comes out on the 18th November.) Here’s my review for folking.com.
BAP KENNEDY – Reckless Heart (Last Chance Records LCR 048)
Another review for Folking.com, this time of two fascinating albums by The Lowest Pair.
Another review for Folking.com, this time of two fascinating albums by The Lowest Pair. I even managed to resist including any banjo jokes. Though my wife will tell you that my banjo-playing is a joke.
These guys, however, not only play rather well, but write some great songs: country-ish with a tinge of old-time and bluegrass with some really clever lyrics.
THE LOWEST PAIR – Uncertain As It Is Uneven (Team Love Records TL-93 ) – Fern Girl & Ice Man (Team Love Records TL-94)
My first review for Folking.com looks at a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray set by Andrew John & Lissa.
Here’s a link to my first music review for folking.com (a great site with excellent reviews and much more), of a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray set from Denmark: ANDREW JOHN & LISSA – At Home (Last Resort Records LRCD010).
There are some older album reviews (by no means necessarily of new releases or re-releases) on Sabrinaflu (mostly mine, but one by Fliss), though any future reviews that don’t fit Folking.com’s brief will probably be posted first here.
There’s now a review page on this site, with links to the Folking.com and Sabrinaflu reviews cited above.
