Default Restless Faithful ... by Kath Bloom & Loren Connors

Time for us to chat about Frownland´s winner in the recent FAIR poll:-

Some beautiful folk from an improvisational guitarist and a female folk singer. This is a two disc album that contains the first two albums of this duo. The songs are hauntingly emotional, mostly because of Bloom's vocals. Connors plays some good and somewhat noodly backgrounds to these songs that complement Bloom's style very well. I don't know if Connors is improvising or not, but it's a stunning product either way.

Does anyone have a comparison, a comment or a question ?

Emotional is right! So not my taste. But, as with most of the music that turns up in this club, I can appreciate its artistry. I also like the guitar bits. Her vocals don't do it for me, though. It kinda sounds like a lullaby. I'm sure it could be used as such, also...

Thanks for the submission, Frownland!

Some music does it´s job so well that it immediately puts you in a special mood, and that´s what Frownland´s latest nomination did for me. The songs I listened to were unadorned, plaintive, confessional although I couldn´t get access to the whole album;the album is not very easy to find, but that rather matches the kind of cult status that Kath Bloom and Loren Connors share.

Like misspoptart, I had a problem with KB´s voice, which I found rather weak and high-pitched. Given that her voice is the dominant element on the albums, that means that I won´t be playing these songs too often, even though I was struck by their uncompromising honesty and some of the lyrics, which made me think, "hey, that´s good. I must remember that!"

So, overall, this album gets a Good vote from me
