Album Review

Elfin Saddle – “Ringing For The Begin Again” – [Constellation]

humana   5/8/2009   A Library, CD

Folk/Experimental: Together Emi Honda from Japan and Jordan McKenzie from Canada create some beautiful music, much of it classical sounding (9 mimics the breaking of waves), although 4 sounds distinctly Japanese, while 7 sounds almost Yiddish. Accordion, ukulele, excellent percussion, saw, banjo, xylophones, and guitar (which sounds great on 3, my favorite) conspire along with the pretty voices of Honda (who sings in Japanese) and McKenzie to spin tales of blossoms (4), powerful sunrises (6), and even parades (5). Nathan Gage on contrabass and tuba, along with Jessica Moss on violin and Nick Scribner on trumpet, fill out the musical palette of this fine offering by Elfin Saddle.
PGM: See inside envelope for track lengths and early ending times.
