Big Blood – “Already Gone I” – [Dontrusttheruin]

Beautiful sounds in a gorgeous hand-made package (see it in its DIY glory on Big Blood’s blog) from Maine’s Big Blood. This is a new release from spring 2009, part of a double CD series. Colleen Kinsella and Caleb Mulkerin are the main artists at work here (with origins in Cerberus Shoal), with various friends helping out.

I love this release. It’s got a range of influences, including country, folk, and Asian pop. Colleen’s voice is haunting, yet freak folky in the best possible way (I agree with others who’ve made comparisons to Coco Rosie…although it’s more subdued). There’s strum, fuzz, warble, crickets, bird sounds, guitar, percussion, piano and some twangy sing-alongs. Also, a nice (and very different from the original) cover of The Cult’s “She Sells Sanctuary.”

    This band is so good it makes my little blood boil! And as you point out Cynthia, they get the idea of doing covers…
