GUEST,Nicholas Waller Folk albums of 2007 (116* d) RE: Folk albums of 2007 24 Oct 07

Cragrat: I hadn't heard of The Owl Service either until a few days ago, when I noticed a free £7 voucher from Woven Wheat Whispers (the folk music download shop) in my email box (you have to have been already registered with WWW). I went to the site, The Owl Service's Garland of Song is their featured album, I liked what I heard of the samples they had, and so I got it (£5) and like it a lot (also comes with a bonus EP).

Click on the album for more info and samples of 6 tracks.

Also, here's some blurb from their Myspace site:

"The Owl Service formed through a mutual love of British films and television of the 1960s and 70s, the great outdoors and {of course} the sound of the English folk revival. No retro obsessives, The Owl Service simply believe that music production peaked around 1969 and they merely seek to perfectly encapsulate the influence of the greatest albums and artists of that time. Beautiful music, simply arranged, exquisitely executed and captured on tape with authentic warmth".
