Julie Murphy - Lilac Tree (2002 Wales) @320

.
By now we really shouldn't be surprised by anything that Julie Murphy delivers. In the past she has given us traditional material, Welsh language songs, and made bold excursions into world music... and now there is a first album of her own original material. And what is more, given her track record, we really shouldn't be surprised, either, that it's so very good. Murphy seems to have the Midas touch and while these songs - most co-written with Fernhill guitarist and singer Richard Llewellyn - are a slow burn, they gnaw away at you with instant guile. Her songwriting was apparently sparked by the death of her father, and the album recorded in a four-day frenzy of activity at the Dreamworld studios in Pembrokeshire. The result is a low-key album of understated passion and minimalist jazzy arrangements (an extraordinary arrangement of Fighting for Strangers)... Murphy is a class act who invests her songs with such an instinctively subtle gravitas you are drawn in before you know it. Deeply impressive. - Colin Irwin, Mojo

Julie Murphy & Dylan Fowler - Ffawd (2001 Wales) @320

.
Ffawd (fate): A whole album of the thrilling, clear voice of Julie Murphy is certainly good news. Here she is accompanied by Dylan Fowler, a guitarist of no mean technique, but more importantly of great imagination. Whilst Murphy is best known as vocalist with Fernhill, Fowler has a more jazz background and has collaborated with such varied figures as Danny Thompson, Loreena McKennit and Dick Heckstall-Smith ....

Julie Murphy, Lynne Denman & Joanne Acty - English Love Songs (1998 Wales) @320

.
Searching for Lambs...The Cuckoo...A Blacksmith Courted Me...The Dark-Eyed Sailor... these and ten more love songs are among the treasures of the English folk tradition and wonderfully evoked in this album. Available both on CD and cassette the collection is presented by three fine interpreters of traditional song. Fernhill's Julie Murphy is already acknowledged as one of the foremost singers of her generation - 'a stunning female voice' is how Living Tradition magazine has described her. Julie has often performed in partnership with Lynne Denman from the band Ffynnon, and the power of their vocal harmonies can be heard on the album's fine version of The Banks of the Sweet Primroses. Joanne Acty from the acclaimed Oxfordshire band Magpie Lane completes the trio of performers whose voices are enhanced by sensitive and inventive arrangements on fiddle, guitar, clarinet, accordion, cello, harpsichord and other instruments.

Fernhill - Hynt (2003 Wales) @320

.
Fernhill continues its well-deserved run as one of Wales' top bands with their fourth release, Hynt. Formed in 1996, the group earned its reputation by adding a sophisticated, jazzy twist on traditional Welsh music. The centerpiece is the remarkable voice of Julie Murphy. It is a deceptively unassuming instrument, devoid of histrionics yet emotive and jam-packed with nuance. She draws the listener in with a supple turn of phrase and an expressive vibrato. Her band mates (Ceri Rhys Matthews on guitar, Cass Meurig on fiddle and crwth, Tomos Williams on trumpet, and Tim Harris on bass) complement her cool vocals with a light, groove-based back-up, but they are far more than mere accompanists. Williams' work on trumpet has the stamp of Miles Davis all over it, with its drawn-out, muted lines. Meurig's fiddle has just the right lilt. Matthews and Harris keep things flowing with their expansive sense of rhythm.
The songs on this release have the deep mysticism of Welsh myth, with images of dark woods, fairies, goblins and misty moors, yet they avoid drifting off into the aether or wallowing in New Age cliché. Their urbane, earthy sensibility keeps things well grounded. The mesmerizing title track has a seductive sway and features scratchy snippets of spoken Welsh between the phrases. There are several epic ballads on the disc that run through multiple changes in pace, texture, and tone. "Gwalch (Nutty Man)," a surrealistic number that weighs in at over nine minutes, features the English-language rapping of Nobsta Nutts. The seven-minute plus "Grey Cock" showcases Murphy's elastic sense of phrasing and ability to handle large melodic leaps. Despite the length of these and other tracks, the disc clocks in at only forty-one and a half minutes, leaving the listener thirsty for more. Fernhill's subtle siren song is a rare treat, and one well worth following.

Pairdown - Holykyle (USA 2009) @320

.
P R O M O T I O N - FULL ALBUM

Pairdown is the collaboration of Pittsburgh-based singer-guitarists David Leicht and Raymond Morin. The two met and began performing together in 2005. Their eponymous EP, released on Sort Of Records in 2006, is a collection of six songs blending the duo’s inter-dependent acoustic guitar work with Leicht’s inventive writing. The opening title, “Nonlinear Lions” was coined in a passage of Mike Davis’ book, Ecology Of Fear, concerning the link between environmental fluctuations and outbreaks of 'deviant' animal behavior. A series of uneasy images are feathered with bits of satire, from the intro: “they love the taste of your lotion / ending your motion…” to dadaesque refrain, chanted in a bluesy, two-part harmony: “in this future, you’re furniture!”

Holykyle, released February 2009, builds on fundamentals of the EP with increasingly complex writing and guitar arrangements enlivened by electric bass and tight drumming. Over the course of ten songs, Morin & Leicht trade off lead and accompanying vocal duties, with additional contributions by Nate McDermott (of the Boston-based group Paper Thin Stages). The record opens with “Percy In Her Hairfork,” about a Gulf War deserter harbored by a former lover. “Spotted Eye” is a joyful tune penned by Morin, based on his larger illustrated work. The title track, “Holykyle,” is a surrealist’s paean set to hypnotic finger picked guitars and percussion. The song commences with an invitation: “come, you pariahs, aboard / my you-shape canoe, holykyle / I’ve donned her rims with roses / worked her down with a hazel pole.”

Despite the occasional folk-blues guitar phrase or psychedelic turn, Holykyle does not feel like a period piece. Its stylistic precedents range from vintage acoustic-rock hybrids like Leo Kottke’s Mudlark and Love’s Forever Changes, to modern polyphonic guitar experiments epitomized by Gastr Del Sol’s post-rock masterpiece, Upgrade and Afterlife. Holykyle was recorded at Morin’s home with an 8-track reel-to-reel tape deck and modest assortment of microphones. Nate McDermott mixed the tracks in Boston. Hans DeKline of Sound Bites Dog mastered the audio in Los Angeles. Bill Smith Custom Records cut and pressed the 12” vinyl.
