• crescent Resin Pockets (CD, £10.50)

    label: geographic

    Matt Jones’ Crescent release ‘Resin Pockets’, their first album in ten years, on Geographic Music.  ‘Resin Pockets’ is an album that nestles beautifully into a long history of visionary outsider English pop craft, in the same vein as the isle’s solitary voices, all singing against the grain - the playfulness of Kevin Ayers; the grace of Vashti Bunyan; the rhapsody of Robert Wyatt; the melancholy of Epic Soundtracks; the revelations of Bill Fay. It’s an album of joyous melody and evocative poetry, of community and intimacy.  Matt predominantly performed the album, in collaboration with his brother Sam on drums, tambourine and ‘lookout’, though some other familiar faces appear, too: Kate Wright of Movietone as well as Lisa Brook and Michal William of Headfall feature too.
