5.0 out of 5 stars Blends Quirkiness & Accessibility Beautifully., 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose" (CD Included) [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Melds experimental freak-folk with pop song writing in a stunning fashion. Beth Jeans Houghton juggles genres effortlessly without appearing schizophrenic or desperate - instead, her combination of choirs, string quartets, horn sections, guitars electric and acoustic, and lofty operatic vocals move seamlessly within this eclectic and wonderful collection of songs, some upbeat A-sides, others more dreamlike and thoughtful.

What separates her from most folk-friendly indie artists is her sense of humour and fun; what separates her from most folk-friendly rock artists is her lack of conservatism and avoidance of cliché or generic belting choruses. Nor, like many 'quirky' female singer-songwriters, does her work feel like it's trying to fit a façade or a mould or a marketing slogan. Her work with the Hooves is genuinely original and creative.

In short, a fantastic LP from a fantastic artist. Perhaps my favourite from 2012 - certainly this is my favourite so far. Would honestly recommend.
