lean year

Staying with Western Vinyl, tripped across this, truth be we were blown away. This is from Lean Year from a self-titled album just out, this being the track ‘waterloo suns’. The press blurb mentions Karen Dalton, the reference very apt and far from lost on us because this track does tread upon a lineage that draws heavily to evoke a misty recall of Linda Perhacs and Susan Christie simultaneously linking the invisible dots to Laura J Martin. Weaved in a ghostly intimacy that pulls you near, amid its sparse tip toeing framing and willowy wood craft, a deliciously demurring and sighing folk spectral seductively strays occasionally visited by some niftily fraying and smoulder toned riff punctures. https://soundcloud.com/western_vinyl/lean-year-waterloo-suns
