    Default Shearwater - Palo Santo

    Shearwaters "Palo Santo" (the release before Rook) brings to mind the beauty of solitude, taking the listener on a musical journey that, with a dedicated ear will find one returning repeatedly. Jonathan Meiburg has his own unique vocal style that begs comparisons with Darren Richard of Pinetop Seven, Glen Richards of Augie March and Jeff Buckley. The music sways from almost silent to eruptions of sounds. Varied instruments are used throughout in the complex arrangements on offer here.
    This re-released version on Matador includes a couple more tracks and makes this double album sonically far superior then the original release. If you like their last Disc "Rook" you will like this one.
    Shearwater are one of those unique few bands that matter.
    And in concert on these shores:
    13-9 Dorset End of Road Festival
    14-9 Oxford Zodiac
    15-9 Glasgow Captain's Rest
    16-9 Manchester Roadhouse
    17-9 London Bush Hall
    18-9 London Rough Trade East

    Never seen them and really looking forward to it.

    Had a listen on you tube. Sort of like Coldplay only with better tunes and the guy can sing.

    I would say a little like Talk Talk with more complex arrangements. It's not easy access music, but very rewarding in the long term. Lot's of hidden melodies in the mix. I am pleased to sent you a taster if you want.
