Hugo Mudie and Fred Jacques from the bands SAINTE CATHERINES and YESTERDAY’S RING have a new band and direction. This is eleven acoustic songs with touches of country, folk, Irish folk, and hints of punk in the lyrics and in the raspy vocals throughout the album.
You can hear the hints of their influences on here including Joe Strummer, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen, The Pogues and Richard Séguin on the songs on here, but they don’t overwhelm the true talent that’s at work on the album, it just gives you a hint of them. The playing on this album is really well done, it feels like you’re at a show watching these guys play, which would be a great way to hear the album. The styles go back and forth and it takes you on a journey that goes in all sorts of directions, but still is a cohesive piece of music. I really enjoyed all of the songs on the album, they were well written and no matter which one I put on, I instantly got into it and wanted to hear it again.
I was a bit scared when I first started to listen to this album, that it was going to be ambient and pompous, but this band took away the fear and the longer I went into the album, the more that I liked what I heard and really enjoyed it. Sometimes you take a chance and it blows up in your face, this time it worked out perfectly, an album that grows on you more you hear it and you want to keep hearing it.
