Product Description

With the new album Passport selling well heres the first 2 albums now at a new lower price. Passion play is a sensuous ten song musing upon the highs and lows of life: namely love, death, drugs, alcohol, sex, ambition and highwaymen. Katy conjures a magical world of cruising sexual predators, interstellar relationships, religious junkies and erotic vampires. Style wise passion play retains the alt-folk mood of debut album Screwing lies , whilst introducing electronic elements due to Katy s growing interest in the dance scene. The work of 4-hero, A guy called Gerald, Bjork and Micatone have been particcularly inspirational. The songs capture moments from forgotten times and places, making the everyday seem extraordinary and possess a quintessentially english character. Outstanding tracks include the Kruder & Dorfmeister influenced Paper castle featuring Olly Parfitt of the Herbaliser on wurlitzer, performance poet John Hegley as the infamous highwayman on Turpin , and Sharkesville with Calina Mare, violinist with the Tindersticks. Brass, double bass, cello and violin add depth and light to arrangements. The moog brings a touch of Jean-Jacques Perry retro feel to the dance-floor friendly Borderline . Passion play is peopled with a menagerie of hot-headed, cold-blooded and starry-eyed characters obsessed with fulfilling their desires. Not unlike the real world, but with a touch more magic. Katy Carr is committed to bringing trills and folk thrills into the 21st century.

You have to wonder how the likes of Katy Carr manage to slip unrecognised under even the alternative media's radar. After her impressive folkier debut, Screwing Lies, this album shows her accomplished, inventive songwriting shifting into a more electronic, commercial arena. That said, it still showcases harmonics as wonderful and moving as early Joni Mitchell. She sings with a distinctly British, folk-tinged clarity twisted up with darkly enigmatic yet unpretentious imagery. This is an eclectic but highly listenable, catchy blend of keyboard loops, jazzy indie beats and folk/acoustic melodies peppered with tablas and brass. Passionate and playful indeed. She's just as impressive live. How many artists can strip their music down to the bare, acapella vocal and hold a hall in breathless thrall? This is a beautiful and refreshing album, and Katy is a talent deserving of a much wider audience.

Actually I know next to nothing about Folk but....the phrasing is right, the vocals are etheral and the subject matter delves well outside the mainstream. In short we're in the right neck of the woods. However, what we have is a template for the current century. The songs merge influences and styles creating something new in the process. This is by no means easy listening, you cannot anticipate much of what you hear but it is an exciting exploration of sound.
The staging of standout track "Turpin" (about the highwayman!) will have the Folk police scouring thier songbooks for its origins whilst Adam Ant would turn in his grave for the sheer front and bravado of its performance.
There is nothing comparible to this out there at the moment, which makes it unique and fascinating. There is something going on here and not knowing exactly what makes it all the more appealing.
The future of Folk?.....possibly not...but it wouldn't surprise me if one or two ideas from here crop up elsewhere in the coming months. If you want something new and challenging, here it is read it here first.
