Cock And Swan – Stash

My record label Lost Tribe Sound sent me a whole batch of records recently.  A lovely gesture from a lovely bunch of people.  Anyways, among them was this record by Cock and Swan and what a lovely little gem it is.

This is a really interesting piece of work that combines stunningly haunting a floaty vocals with off kilter beats and percussion.  In fact, it’s the drums on this record that more often than not sucks you in.  Take the title track for instance.  There I am thinking ‘uh oh, pan pipes’ and wondering where this floaty, breezey, twee start would lead when all of a sudden the drums kick in and the song is transformed into a dynamic and engaging number.

This really is a beautifully crafted record.  For those in Scotland, if you like the feel of Conquering Animal Sound, you are probably going to really enjoy this record.  Coming from the same dark yet uplifting world ‘Stash’ really is one of the best records I’ve heard so far this year.  And I’m not just saying that because I have a record coming out on Lost Tribe Sound.  This really is a gorgeous, dense record that deserves to be discovered by more and more people.

You can discover it here.  And you should.

Enjoy.
