A frequent complaint in our gaff is the lack of time we appear to find ourselves blessed with of late, the music and the amount of it we get sent whether physical or download we are not complaining of getting, the more the merrier. Yet what grieves us are the ones that slip away, we feel on an ever-regular basis that we are letting folk down and boy does that hurt. Mentioned this release on several occasions now, might it be easier just to do a track by track analysis, it’s getting that way or so it seems. This is ‘against our laws contrary’ a cut pulled from the simply distracting beauty that is the Memory Band’s ‘a fair field’ currently doing the rounds on the esteemed Static Caravan. In truth one of our favourites of the years, this bucolic sprayed slice of lazy eyed idyll comes succulently trimmed in a rustic waltz whereupon pastoral posies are delicately harvested and draped across a wistful nostalgic framing of old English folk fayre mistiness the type of which reflectively bites with a tearful turn much reminiscent of that equally humbling listening love from earlier in the year by littlebow.
