Product description

Product Description

Spellbinding multi-instrumental trio Three Cane Whale combine the influences of folk, minimalism, classical and film music to produce something "impressively original" (The Guardian) and uniquely moving. As intricate as a team of watchmakers yet as spare as a mountain stream, the music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy, evoking a diversity of landscapes and atmospheres. The band's eponymous debut album (Idyllic Records, 2010) was recorded live in an eleven-hour shift in an eighteenth-century Bristol church, chosen by Cerys Matthews as one of her 'Top Five Modern Folk Albums' in The Sunday Telegraph and played on BBC Radio 4, BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, RTE Ireland, and Resonance FM. Their much-anticipated new album, 'Holts And Hovers' on Fieldnotes Records, consists of 19 tracks and 3 short interludes recorded in 20 different locations in Dorset, Wales, London, Somerset and Bristol, including churches and chapels, kitchens and hilltops, a greenwood barn and an allotment shed, the top of a Welsh waterfall and the underside of a Bristol flyover. The band is Alex Vann (mandolinist with Spiro), Pete Judge (trumpeter with Get the Blessing) and Paul Bradley the one man band for Fleur Darkin'sdance company. Location can be everything, in music just as much as the property market. What is remarkable about the second album from this experimental Bristol acoustic trio is their approach to recording. Almost all the 22 tracks were recorded live at different locations, from a Bristol kitchen to a Dorset chapel, or beside a Welsh waterfall, and the often brief, atmospheric pieces are influenced by the settings. So there's a track named after and recorded at the site of an abandoned Avon Gorge railway station, while another is recorded in a shed near the Clifton suspension bridge, inspired by the story of two girls thrown from the bridge in 1896 who survived thanks to their billowing dresses. The trio play a variety of instruments – guitar, harp, trumpet, mandolin, banjo – and match the repetition of systems music against traditional melodies. This would make a great film project. **** Robin Denselow, The Guardian
