5.0 out of 5 stars simple, beautiful, 1 Sept. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Rabbit Songs (Audio CD)
I came across this lot through a gorgeous sample track on a magazine cd and, since buying the album, have been spreading the word like a preacher.
Easy comparisons would be Cowboy Junkies and the Be Good Tanyas ( fans of either should not hesitate to buy this immediately ) but that's a rather trite and unfair summing up of the riches on offer.
Sally Ellyson sings with the delicate precision of a Whippet picking it's way across nightingale boards. The sound is laid back folk country, with some lovely mandolin work against a rhythm section of stand up bass and brushed percussion. Special mention needs to be made of Dan Messe's fine piano work -he writes the songs too.
Live, they are quietly sensational to listen to and exceedingly friendly to meet.
I've lost count of the number of people I've turned on to Hem -it's just such an instantly loveable album. Do yourself a very big favour indeed.
