1 - MCGEE, KIRSTY -& THE HOBOPOP COLLECTIVE- - THE DEAFENING SOUND OF SILENCE - (CD) 
HOBOPOP


Drawing on old vinyl blues, gospel, '30s jazz, Brechtian ballads and Brill Building sensibilities, Kirsty eschews the lures of genre stereotyping. Constantly striving for new and inspirational backdrops for her soundscapes, The Deafening Sound Of Stars sees the release of 14 new songs as well as a limited edition 'sister' record of field recordings made in Italy last summer.Kirsty began writing the album in a caravan in the Mojave desert in the autumn of 2015, planning to make a series of field recordings inspired by jazz standards. A first attempt to record the songs was made in Arctic Norway in January 2018 and this was followed up by a second pass in Italy later that year. 'We recorded live and without air conditioning in the swamp heat of a humid August. Two days in a wooden cellar by a church whose bells chimed twice on the hour and once at half past, later in a fifteenth century church in the Italian mountains where I kept cool by placing my feet on freezer blocks and sang whilst being feasted on by mosquitoes in 40 degree heat.'Recorded in Leeds UK, the final incarnation of the album features Kirsty's full band that includes players from Beats & Pieces Big Band, Richard Hawley's band and arrangements inspired by Mulatu Astatke and Tom Waits. The bigger arrangements create an album that's cinematic in its musical scope and that delights in exploring musical colour, shape and form.

2 - MCGEE, KIRSTY -& THE HOBOPOP COLLECTIVE- - THOSE OLD DEMONS - (CD) 
HOBOPOP


Beatnik by nature, the literate, even filmic, style of Kirsty McGee's output draws on auteurs like Jim Jarmusch and the Coen Brothers; combining humour and dry observation with a grainy old-time black-and-white feel, a smoky jazz bar voice and a deep sense of humanity.Formed in 2007, The Hobopop Collective is McGee's ever-changing bunch of leftfield misfits and ragged visionaries taken from diverse musical backgrounds and raised by extremely gentle wolves. With playing credits ranging from Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello & Tom Waits to Aim and Richard Hawley, the band is unified by a sense of joyous mischief and a compassionate and fair-minded attitude to all genres of music & ways of creating sound. The Collective on this record includes the legendary Marc Ribot (Waits, Costello)The sound is joyful and dirty with hints of gospel and blues, sometimes veering towards jazz, cubist shuffle and wry noir. From musical saw and waterphone to Humber hubcaps and metal buckets, the Collective is a gentle anarchist in a bikini and steel toed boots singing defiant lovesongs through a loudhailer.A prolific and original writer & touring artist, McGee is perhaps best known for her song Sandman which was featured in Danny Boyle's 2013 thriller Trance.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Running With The Blues 02. Salt 03. To The Dogs 04. A Plague 05. A Family Trait 06. Those Old Demons 07. Pray 08. Magnolia 09. Love's Great Lie 10. Sweet Talk 11. Survival 12. Your Main Man
