Leeds-based quartet's debut, filled with untraditional instrumentation (autoharp, violin, accordian) alongside the traditional bass/guitar stringed instruments. The 4-some conjures up short songs crossing all genre lines, passing classical, bluesy folk, experimental, and avante gard along their way. Mostly instrumental tracks with some spoken vocals. Citing influences ranging from Serge Gainsbourg to Nick Drake, Tom Waits to The Birthday Party, Casper the Friendly Ghost to Jack Daniels...sure makes for an interesting concept. And the sounds are pretty interesting too! 12 tracks. UK import.
