Hem's third studio album, Funnel Cloud , features songs of such carefully crafted, dream-like beauty that it's almost impossible to place exactly where they've come from or even in what era they might have been recorded. You can hear a subtle country twang, the storytelling simplicity of great folk music, a touch of Tin Pan Alley sophistication. They at times recall the emotionally ...

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the summer! 2 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Just as the weather finally improves along comes an album that shouts "summer",(well, whispers really, but hopefully you get my drift. Beautiful pastoral tracks that make one long to get out in the country are the order of the day here and the fact that the band are based in New York city is an irony that is not lost on me. There is a sort of NYC air to the lyrics, but this collection of wistful, predominantly acoustic numbers sounds superb if played outdoors in the sunshine. The songs are instantly memorable with delicately picked guitars and soft piano with occasional strings, brass and woodwind backing up gently sung melodic harmonies.

In one word? Elegant!

4.0 out of 5 stars gentle 27 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I do like Hem's album Rabbit Songs but I often have to turn it off at some point as the tracks are all rather similar - gentle, sweet voice and tunes. Departure and Farewell is superior to this and a little more varied. Its a great c.d. for listening to in the car, people often ask who it is when they hear it. There is nothing gutsy about this. It's a soothing track, with a lot of heartfelt lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEM ageless but fresh 30 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An album that sounds so familiar on listening yet fresh and different enough to hold the ear and attention to the musicality and lyrics that reward a hearing. Like a new old friend that comforts but also stimulates. Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars worth waiting for 29 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another beautiful album from the Brooklyn based outfit. Well crafted songs with beautiful instrumentation but it's Sally Ellyson's voice which really makes Hem's music a joy to listen to. Doesn't hit the heights quite so often as previous albums 'Eveningland', 'Funnel Cloud' and 'Rabbit Songs' but is not far off.
