lisa o piu Whisperers, Wavers, Hunters and Sailors (7", £3.95)label: Autumn Ferment Records
Lisa O Piu’s 7” vinyl, featuring sleeve art by Lisa herself, heralds the first release for Autumn Ferment Records. ‘Whisperers, Wavers, Hunters and Sailors’ and ‘Equatorial Changes’ provide a fantastic introduction to the otherworldly sound that Lisa creates. Lyrically nostalgic and thought provoking, Lisa's hushed vocals combined with stirring harmonies and dreamlike melodies tenderly picked on acoustic guitar warrant comparisons to classic late sixties and early seventies recordings by the likes of Linda Perhacs, Joni Mitchell or Vashti Bunyan. Influences and comparisons aside, Lisa's well structured compositions bring their own unique qualities to the present day blend of alternative folk. Taken from Lisa’s home recorded lo-fi gem of a cdr, these two tracks capture the original rustic charm of her early sessions and the feel of a one take recording. Now preserved on the holiest of musical formats, these recordings will stand to represent the ascent of a truly talented musician who has a great future ahead of her.
