Album Review

Davenport – “Rabbit’s Foot Propeller” – [Three Lobed Recordings]

Numa   4/13/2006   A Library, CD

Free-Folk Homesteading. This limited release (1000 copies) from Three Lobed Recordings offers up Madison, Wisconsin’s Davenport doing what they do best, freaky far-out free-folk. Don’t come here looking for song structure or meaning, this is amoebic chaos with an off-kilter country stomper thrown in for fun. Organic sounds throughout this release with strange effects added by using a handheld recorder without an erase head. The overdubbing wasn’t monitored and usually breaks in with sounds in progress as the recorder normalizes the speed (providing a strange and slightly unsettling effect). Davenport has performed with the likes of Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, Black Forest/Black Sea, and many of the great artists coming out of Finish free-folk scene. Davenport is not to be left out of your free-folk album collection. –Numa
