Jonny Kearney & Lucy Farrell – Kite (Rabble Rouser)

mp3: Jonny Kearney & Lucy Farrell – Stand Up Show

This album scraped in at the last minute, just displacing Africa Hitech‘s ace 93 Million Miles. I got Kite late in the year, and it’s still worming its way into my brain  but it’s a lovely thing. I guess it veers on twee in places, it’s certainly sweet and gentle. Loosely folk,but there’s music hall in here, some almost indie pop songs, a Psapp-ish way with a melody, some surprising arrangements and instruments. As I understand it, it was recorded under the sink at the Unthanks‘ cottage down the road from here or something (and it’s on their label). It’s not challenging or radical, it’s comfortable and and warm and fuck it, it’s a cold day up here in Northumberland and you need this sort of thing sometimes.
buy it
