The sixties with a bullet !,
This review is from: Sunday At Devil Dirt (Audio CD)
This is a really engaging record which got under my skin from the openings bars of 'Seafaring song'. Incredibly retro with Mark Lanegan sounding like smokey sixties crooner Lee Hazlewood to Isobel's Nancy Sinatra with Burt Bacharach strings thrown in for good measure.
Hard to categorize...Is it Pop, C&W, Nu-Folk, Indie ???
Whatever it is this eclectic fusion of vocals and lush instrumentals just reaches parts that other recent quirky releases just cannot reach.
As rich as Java coffee and dark chocolate.

Largely not categorisable is probably the best definition there is for this album.
If you asked me for one I'd go with alt-country. Whatever it is, it is certainly a very good album and it is available on vinyl too, which makes its slightly old-fashioned dusty atmosphere feel all the more realistic.
