KATH BLOOM — For fans of the song and how to feel it. Kath Bloom (Connecticut) is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. She has a special gift – her voice is delicate and tender, yet retains that raw emotion and hard worn truths that allows each sung word to be felt.

The more you hear of Kath Bloom, the more you notice it’s not just the arresting voice, but the power of the songwriting. “Beautiful” is the typical response—the kind of beauty that comes from truth, musical and the deeply lyrical. There are no good comparisons, but if you like the deep well of Emmylou Harris, the more poignant lyrics of Lou Reed, the joy of Maher Shalal Hash Baz or even Joni Mitchell, you're kinda in the right zone. In reality, she’s simply Kath Bloom: horse whisperer, vocalist, mum, songwriter and a beautiful person.

Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago. In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.

ROB NOYES (Massachusetts) has emerged as one of the most exciting acoustic guitarists in the American Primitive scene, drawing from his past work with a heavy downstroke style. “Noyes sometimes seems to have absorbed an almost infinite reservoir of influences,” explains Byron Coley. “Apart from some superb Basho-like 12-string tunneling, most momentary fragments tend to recall legendary Limeys like John Renbourn (and through him, Davey Graham), because Rob's overt melodic structures tend towards the non-bluesoid. But then you'll maybe hear a note-sequence spiced like something dropped from the hot strings of Michael Chapman or even a powerful throng that makes you think of Wizz Jones. When that happens, you realize there's more of a blues base to some of the songs than you'd been able to untangle.” What there is no need to untangle is the spidery melodies that dart amongst the intricate playing. There are brushes of delicate beauty and dramatic surges. It’s too simplistic to describe Noyes as experimental folk for punk rockers, though having Raymond Pettibon artwork on your record sleeve more than invites in that audience. This is just simply music that makes you feel alive, and that it is made by just a man and a guitar makes it all the more incredible. https://robnoyes.bandcamp.com/
