Album Review

Charming Hostess have something interesting in mind with The Bowls Project. The inspiration comes from texts found buried in demon bowls 1,500 years ago in Babylon (modern-day Iraq). These aren't the only things here (there's also a take on the traditional "Prickle Eye Bush" [or "Gallows Pole"], for instance), but these texts do make for particularly fascinating and spooky listening, especially as they come set in a variety of frames, mostly veering to the avant-garde although there are definite touches of slightly skewed roots music as part of the proceedings. There are plenty of guests to bolster the six-piece band that's led by Jewlia Eisenberg. The texts here all have a Jewish heritage, offering a cohesion to the project. It's challenging, bringing the women who had these inscriptions made back to life and giving them a modern context.
