rachael dadd Bite the Mountain (CD, £9.95)label: Broken Sound
· Multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd’s experimental folk follow-up to last year’s ‘Moth In The Motor’ mini-album and ‘Elephee’ EP. · Always on the road, last year alone she toured the UK twice (with Bella Union’s Alessi’s Ark, Deamboat’s This Is The Kit, Domino’s Francois & The Atlas Mountains, and Fence Records’ Rozi Plain), toured Europe and Japan twice, played four separate shows at Glastonbury Festival, and found herself listed in XFM’s John Kennedy’s Top 5 musical discoveries. · Album includes A3 poster created by Rachael. · Experimental folk / alt-folk for fans of Sufjan Stevens, Diane Cluck, Laura Marling, Peggy Sue, early Regina Spektor. A collection of raw and honest recordings, mostly recorded onto 4 track tape at various studios over a two month period during her recent travels in Japan. · Rachael is a phenomenally talented multi-instrumentalist, turning her hands to clarinet, piano, ukulele, banjo, guitar, thumb piano, percussion, and layers of harmony, carefully overdubbing parts until the songs become whole. · The album beautifully ties together Rachael’s loves of Japan, the Brooklyn anti-folk scene, traditional folk music, and contemporary experimental arrangement.
