The Speakers - Yeats is Greats
Amazing work - this album will sidle up to you, get all comfy, then quietly hum a few bars of something, drift and mumble a bit, sing and hum a bit more, mebbe strum a few chords, pause, get a sip of water, turn in place until it finds that comfortable spot again, and settle in for a few more tunes. Haunting and insidious. Strongly reminiscent of the slanted folk-pop of Granfaloon Bus and the Microphones.
I really enjoy this album. If only everyone would take a listen, the world would be much more... relaxed? and Yeats IS greats!
A hauntingly beautiful album that combines works by W.B. Yeats and the Speakers to create extremely pretty, yet mellow, melodies. Expect to hear many acoustics here, as well as gentle vocals. A great album to fall asleep to or doze with. I highly recommend it, and it's worth every penny. If you're hesitant about dropping all of your cash on the album, listen to "A Cradle Song". If that doesn't get your romantic side stirring, I don't know what will.
