The Old Believers – Granny's Song

‘Eight Golden Greats’ is the debut album from the Old Believers pair of Nelson Kempf and Keeley Boyle. It sounds earthy and blessed with the sort of moving parts that just get you in the gut. Because it comes from a remarkably youthful duo from Alaska also helps, that and the fact that it is fashioned in parts in Win Butler’s image. So as you’d expect there is plenty of mood with Nelson Kempf and Keeley Boyle reaching for the sort of nuances you thought had gone out of fashion. In that sense much of the album sounds like it was recovered from a long lost master tape. Must have been recorded in rich stereo though as ‘Granny’s Song’ so amply proves. This is memorable stuff, an unhurried shuffle that is subtlety crafted to soothe your overworked senses. KD
