ORGAN THING: Seth Lakeman’s Ballads Of The Broken Few…

Seth Lakeman is set to release a new album “Ballads Of The Broken Few”, expect it on Spetember 16th via Cooking Vinyl, there’s a press release somewhere around here, lost in the mess and the seagull fallout. You don’t need press releases and such do you, here’s the video and more importantly the song….  

.

“Continuing Seth’s unique vision for recording in inspiring locations – previous albums have been recorded in a church and a copper mine – the 11 tracks for “Ballads of the Broken Few” were cut ‘live’ with an organic, acoustic vibe in the Great Hall of a Jacobean Manor House and they shine with the atmosphere of that setting. The spiritual-sounding songs have a trance-like quality: they encompass evocative contemporary messages, yet have an ethereal sound as if they have been hanging in the air for centuries. Ethan has let nothing impair the raw, visceral content – just enshrined the pure sounds of voices and ringing instruments. He comments “The kind of record I like captures human performance.”
