Recording: Isla Craig

Artist: Isla Craig

Song: unknown*

Recorded at Burdock Music Club, August 11, 2015.

Isla Craig - unknown

I was glad to have another chance to hear the new set of songs Craig's been putting together. The backing band was largely the same as when I heard them before, driven by Johnny Spence's synth and Evan Cartwright's percussion, but now joined by Rob Clutton on electric bass. He was still having chords listed to him sotto voce as the set began, but fell into the groove quite ably. Despite having Ivy Mairi and Tamara Lindeman on hand to act as backing vocalists, this song starts like something out of Craig's last batch, just looped vocals floating along until the groove kicks in two-thirds of the way through. Wonderful stuff.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
