Product Description

Product Description

A brand new album from the critically acclaimed and increasingly popular Po'Girl. Po'Girl co-conspirators Trish Klein and Allison Russell deliver soulful roots, jazz, country grooves and occasional murder ballads. Po'Girl revives all the grit and spirit of old-time sound through their beguiling original songs and distinctive adaptations of traditionals. Their contrasting vocals and strong musicianship create a compelling variety of textures, moods, and emotions. Po'Girl's sound is timeless and timely, these girls are urban minstrels for the twenty-first century. Trish Klein is a founding member of the Be Good Tanyas, the internationally acclaimed alt-folk trio. Her accomplished musicianship and gorgeous vocal harmonies are a strong feature of the band's beautifully nostalgic sound. A musician and a songwriter with a distinctively natural style.

BBC Review

A follow-up to Po'Girls's 2004 debut Vagabond Lullabies is most welcome. It had had the whiff of a one-off project about it, what with the two original collaborators - Alison Russell and Trish Klein - being known more for their other bands, Fear Of Drinking and quirky roots outfit, Be Good Tanyas.

But what started out as a few duo performances while they were sharing a house in East Vancouver now sees Po'Girl expanded to a five-piece who tour the world's folk festivals, and release their music through Canadian label Nettwerk, who generally look after more mainstream artists like Avril Lavigne, Sarah McLachlan and Barenaked Ladies.

Home To You sees them further defining their gentle acoustic sound, offering a similarly bright and breezy yet intimate and charming atmosphere to any Tanyas, She-Haw or Erin McKeown album. There's the expected acoustic mix of guitars, banjos and violin, plus a couple of moments of clarinet and trumpet or wry comments from performance poet CV Avery to keep you on your toes. Where Russell's voice is rich and bluesy, Klein and band members Diona Davies and Awna Texiera offer a more smooth and drowsy tone; put together, their effortless harmonies retain a dreamy quality which makes you wonder if their thoughts are really on other things.

It's not hard to see where this focus could lie. A quick glance through the titles - 'Skies Of Grey', 'Home To You', 'Green Apples', '9 Hours To Go', 'Drive All Night' - and snatches of lyrics about winding roads, clocks ticking, bee pollen or the sweet southern sun, and a wistful preoccupation with the natural world is quickly revealed; one which is continually quashed by the urgent need to gather everything up and leave for the bright lights of the next city without so much as a goodbye. Well, that's the price of success isn't it - and it's only going to get worse! --Sue Keogh

I wouldn't previously have counted myself a fan of Po' Girl,but this album has changed my mind.I quite liked their first two albums,Po' Girl and Vagabond Lullabies,but they were never on my most played list and generally more of a favourite of my wife's.But after playing Home To You a half dozen times I went back and re-evaluated them and they're better than I had given them credit for. Even so,I don't know whether it's the addition of vocals/bassist Awna Teixeira or a general change of heart by the regular members,but I'd guess this album is 10-20% more melodic than either of their two previous albums and that's what turns this from a "3 star not bad" into a "4 star recommended".

Alison Russell's clarinet is much more prominent and adds melody where before there might have been none and Trish Klein seems rather happier than on the latest Be Good Tanyas album,which I find quite dreary.I particularly like Go On And Pass Me By, 'Til It's Gone,Home To You and So Lazy,but my favourite track is is the delicately lovely Ain't Life Sweet.This is one of those songs that seems familiar from the first time you hear it and is written by Canadian folkie Penny Lang,someone I am unfamiliar with but whose work I will now be checking out.

There's nothing staggeringly new on this album, although there is a definte sense of progression,but judging them on their latest releases The Be Good Tanyas and Po' Girl have switched places in my affections.Just as the Tanyas seem to have jettisoned melody along come Po' Girl to pick it up.Don't get me wrong,they haven't suddenly become The Dixie Chicks,but I do think this album's going to broaden their appeal.

Bought this after getting the first two great albums. Also saw PG at Brighton around the time of this album. A wonderful evening of wonderful songs sung and played in a very individual and original style. Love Allisons voice, but Trish's departure after this album was a retrograde step for me.I really like this album.

I saw the girls playing at Borderline the other day. This is a brilliant album! Having been a fan of The Be Good Tanyas and Jolie Holland I have really enjoyed Po'girl's last releases. They have such a passion and energy behind their music...it gets right into your soul. I love this album and thoroughly recommend seeing them live if you can.

I bought this because I liked 'Deer In The Night' but this album is a syrupy boring load of toss.
Buy some Tanya's instead.

HASH(0x927d39fc) out of 5 stars The Girls just get better 26 Dec. 2007
By Hankford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Home To You is full of gorgeous gospel-blues-swamp tinges, sassy and swaggering, heartfelt, but not in a sappy way; an album that will sweep you up and carry you away. This is probably their most accessible album yet, and a perfect introduction to the Girl's for the uninitiated.

As a huge fan of the Po' Girl's previous release, Vagabond Lullabies, it took me a moment to adjust to this new album. What hit me immediately however, was the superior production quality. The girls perfectly pitched harmonies still intertwine like heavenly angels, but here the sound is crisper, cleaner, with those remarkable voices out front, growling and whispered right in your ear. It's a beautiful sound to be sure, befitting a beautiful album.
