Subject: RE: Guardian on 'Shuffle Folk', 'Weirdlore'
The comments on the lack of bass also remind me of our recent discussion towards the end of this thread. If you're working unplugged, some sounds are a lot easier to produce than others.

On the "don't call it twee" front, this reminds me that I must get round to blogging my review of Oak Ash Thorn. I was going to write something when it came out, but held back when I realised that - despite thinking it's a really good album which everyone should own - there was something I didn't quite like about almost every single track, so an honest evaluation would have to be very carefully-worded and it's-not-them-it's-me if it wasn't going to backfire horribly. Maybe I should try anyway. As it goes, I feel a lot more wholeheartedly positive about the Woodbine & Ivy Band's album - and for that matter about FPR001 - so a rave review of Folk Police recordings collectively is still on the cards.
