It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Gizeh, but as always, they’ve brought us quality material. Last Harbour is a band based out of Manchester, England but quite frankly, you wouldn’t suspect that at all. This is some true blue Americana that would fit perfectly with a smoky diner in a 50s noir film, while you have a slice of the finest cherry pie in the land and a cup of coffee. Last Harbour may remind you of the likes of Timber Timbre, with their brooding lead single “Fracture/Fragment” and hey, if this single isn’t enough to whet your appetite, dig in their back catalogue because it’s a treasure trove of gothic blues/folk. Last Harbour, for their last two albums, worked with famed producer Richard Formby but they decided to take the reins this time around. Last Harbour’s Caul is going to be a treat if this single’s a sign of things to come. Check out “Fracture/Fragment” below via the SoundCloud stream and see what you think of it. Cheers!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Caul is the new album from Last Harbour. Based in the northern English city of Manchester, Last Harbour play music with a dark, gothic heart yet their songs are always beautiful and transcendent. After working with producer Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Spacemen 3, Ghostpoet) on two previous albums, the band took time out after touring to build their own studio in 2013. This new album was recorded in that self-created space over a year between 2013-4 and bears testament to a patient and detailed recording process that allowed time for experimentation and careful arrangement. Caul contains all of the band’s trademark bruised laments and doom-filled rock, but there is also an added layer of raw, bleak experimentation that marries ideally and simultaneously with brighter, almost joyous moments.

Price $20.36
