Blacklands : The Wytchwood EP

Having previously performed alongside Bob Dylan, Athlete and Tunng under the name Murphy Kid & The Bad Luck Band, Blacklands was launched last year by Al Murphy and his revolving roster of musicians. 'The Wytchwood EP' is the first fruits of their labour, recorded at an old farmhouse on the North Yorkshire Moors. The four songs here were indubitably influenced by the rural isolation of the moors, the rousing folk of the title track begging to be played in front of a crackling fire. The EP really comes into its own on the more tender songs with 'Listen to Me In Your Heart' a highlight. Although an illustrator by trade, more music is definitely required from Murphy and co.
