Product Description

Product Description

River of sound in rising London band Mishaped Pearls' filmic new album. A river runs through 'Thamesis' and no prizes for guessing it is Old Father Thames, which is also the song that opens this 10-track CD. Produced by hot property Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Christy Moore, Beautiful South). The album is variously big and filmic, haunting and delicate, timeless and highly original with love songs, life songs, shape shifting old English folk songs and a gender switching new take on a Ralph McTell classic. Mishaped Pearls formed in 2009 as a collaboration between songwriter and multi instrumentalist Ged Flood and multi-lingual mezzo soprano Manuela (pictured on album cover), who loves ancient poetry and writes many of the evocative lyrics. Ged has penned original songs for the album as well as revisiting old folk songs and plays acoustic and tenor guitars, tenor banjo, mandolin, saz baglama, charango and takes lead vocals on some numbers. Gerry Diver plays instruments including violin, piano, bass, dulcimer, ukulele and slide guitar while band members Calie Hough (percussion), Andrew Sleightholme, Tom Finigan and Massimo Troiani also contribute. The current live band line-up is completed by newest member Laurel S. Pardue on fiddle who has toured with Sam Lee.

I only heard of this from my insomnia one night: switching on to 6music to hear 'Jimmy' ( a version of the traditional song Polly Vaughn) being played. I was so impressed the next day I checked on the web to find out who it was.

A mix of self-penned and adapted traditional songs, with subtle classical and slight electronica influences, it simply is the most interesting release I've heard this year. I detect similarities to parts of the Smoke Fairies debut release, though no-one else seems to!

This album was recommended to me by a friend and although it is a genre which I'm not particularly familiar with, I love it. Not least Manuela Schuette's voice which manages to sound simultaneously powerful and vulnerable. This is a beautiful, thoughtful, and captivating album. The more I listen to it, the more I enjoy it. Highly recommended.

If you liked Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span then you will almost certainly like this. If you are new to the genre, this would be a decent place to start. For me there are about 5 standout tracks, the best of which is the Title Track "Tamesis". The rest are at least a pleasant listen.
