a breath of fresh air in a group of young musicians who aren't afraid to sound old. in a good way. a lovely blend of harmonicas, accordians, banjos, mandolins and i think there may even be a tuba in there somewhere. catchy melodies, and the harmonies between the alternating male and female lead singers are a joy. having heard the first single "you-go" this was a must buy for me. the band were recently chosen to support seth lakeman and its very apparent he is an influential factor on their music, only alot chirpier. best listened to in an old country pub with a pint of ale and a tapping foot. i ain't seen them live but i reckon it'd be an proper knees-up! if you like noah and the whale, mumford & sons, tom mcrae, beirut, feist, damian rice(track 3)or anything in and around those artists get involved in the keston cobblers club they'll make you smile.
A collection of beautiful songs. Many things have conspired against me seeing them live - a shame for me because they certainly seem to put the effort in. check out their website and youtube pages for more of an idea if you haven't given them a go already.
If you like Moulettes, Show Of Hands or The Mumfords, then, this is a must on your New Year's list. The band are intriguing, mesmerising and hypnotic, they are full of life and, I would imagine, wonderful live (I intend to see them this year). This is a fabulous debut, the stand-outtrack to me is Bazza, but there isn't a bad track out of the five. When you are convinced, think on to buy their debut album 'One, For Words' as well. Keston Cobblers Club are certainly going places...
Warm, fuzzy, nostagic and beautiful. The lovely Cobblers are clearly inspired by a simpler time, whilst not being afraid to add their own funky twist. I've seen them live a few times and their energy and obvious delight in the sound that they create is infectious, and guaranteed to wear out your shoe leather. Watch the videos on YouTube for Giraffe Junkie and For, Words, and be amazed! Scrumptious stuff.
