This New Record Is Quite Nice

David Rotheray with Kathryn Williams: Crows, Ravens and Rooks (Proper Records, 2010)

Here's an unexpectedly lovely song. Mr Rotheray (steady ladies, he's [probably] married [or, at the very least, seeing someone]) used to be in Beautiful South - a band who never really troubled my consciousness much, tbh - and has returned from, frankly, Christ knows where, with an actual folk music album that features not only the lovely Kathryn, but Alasdair Roberts, Eliza Carthy and a "host" of others, all singing what are, from what I can make out, decidedly nice tunes. Having said that, what do I know? Anyhow, all this is out in the middle of August, which is great news, eh?
