In the Spring of 2009 Rough Trade Records released the debut album from Basia Bulat. Entitled Oh, My Darling, the album generated a groundswell of support from both the press and fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heart Ablaze 15 Feb 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The opening track of Basia Bulat's new album
'Heart Of My Own' made my heart beat 20% faster!
The big rattling martial snare drum on 'Go On'
drives the guitar and fiddle laden arrangement
along with hugely energetic gusto! It's a cracking
beginning to a consumately conceived project.

Ms Bulat is a singer/songwriter of distinction
and considerable originality. Not quite country;
not quite folk; a little bit pagan; a whole
lot strangely unsettled and unsettling soul!

Her voice has a curiously dry but affecting quality;
warm around the edges with a gentle vibrato in the middle.

If you are fond of Arcade Fire you may also find
much to love in this vibrant, passionate music.

Crikey! 'Gold Rush' romps along at a fair old pace
(that snare drum again rattling away like the devil
snapping at her heels!) An energetic, inspiring
and uplifting anthem! The ribald harmonies create an
effect not unlike the commentary from a Greek chorus.
The chiming dulcimer; the fizzing strings; it's a
marvellously heady concoction. I loved every last moment!

Conversely 'Sparrow' is a fragile and perfectly formed
ditty of far more intimate proportions. Utterly charming.
If there was ever a place in the world for a ukelele it's right here.

More rip-roaring up-tempo mayhem is unleashed on 'If Only You'.
(Even the dodgy trumpets cannot drag the Diva down!)
Another stirring presentation and a wonderfully fluffed ending!

'The Shore' is a lovely composition. Full of gently jangling
textures (the magical tones of the dulcimer once more) and
probably the finest melody and most accomplished vocal
performance in the whole collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not all folk music is about dead fishermen 20 Feb 2010
By Caitlin
Format:Audio CD
Some-one on a Led Zeppelin bootleg forum pointed me in the direction of Basia Bulat. Folky things are not generally my cup of tea (hence the tile of this review) but am won over by this. She has a lovely quirky ,unusual voice,with a sweet vibrato, vaguely in the same ball -park as Natalie Merchant, but a bit rougher and less whimsical.

This album is a wee gem . It gets off to a belter of a start in Go On (love the drumming on this one , her brother apparently) and some lovely fiddle.

The single Gold Rush keeps up the momentum . The only teeny criticism I have is that the acoustic version of Gold Rush on the "DUUMBO " Session on YouTube is even better , having dropped a slightly syrupy harmony part and it would have been nice to have that version as a bonus " track.

Gold Rush is followed by what for me is the stand out track , Heart of My own , which is one of those songs which, whilst being totally original at the same time has a character of timelessness and tradition.

For me these are the 3 strongest songs but it's all good and is happily free of the dead-hand of worthiness present in so much folk-music

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album from a brilliant young talent 2 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If there has been a better folk album released this year I haven't heard it. All the promise of her first album (Oh My Darling) comes together in this masterclass of song writing and performance. Hardly a weak song on the album and Go On, Heart of My Own, Gold Rush, Shore and Once More for the Dollhouse are absolutely fantastic. A Brilliant album from a brilliant young talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basia Bulat is an absolute goddess 1 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can't think of enough adulatory adjectives for my obsession with Basia Bulat... After seeing her support Johnny Flynn (listen to him if you haven't before!) I immediately fell in love and purchased this CD. It's just truly beautiful...

5.0 out of 5 stars Who'da thunk it - folk music with balls! 11 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Discovered this album because it was recommended as a great recording by a poster on a audiophile-type forum. Not normally a fan of folky stuff, but when I played the samples on BB's MySpace page I was blown away by her powerful voice & her band's gutsy & dynamic playing. Liking this a lot, & enjoying it all the more each time I listen. And yes, it is also a great recording.
