Brains S.A. 03:57


Jim Powell returns to Aldora Britain Records, venturing deep into his love of traditional folk music. 'Brains S.A.' is the new release and is backed up by a lovely, acoustic version of 'I Never Spoke Your Name', a track originally released on Jim's 2021 album, Beneath the Bark.

'Brains S.A.' is a spectacular departure for this Californian singer/songwriter. The composition looks more closely at Jim's love of traditional British music, breathing new life into the tavern songs of old. The predominate tin whistle feature is breath-taking and casts up images of the valleys and landscapes of Britain, specifically the Welsh countryside. The reimagining of 'I Never Spoke Your Name' is worthy of a mention too. Stripped to its bare bones, it is a fascinating and honestly revealing cut. The kind of recording that would make you check out it's mother-album, the brilliant Beneath the Bark.

For fans of Richard Thompson, Ralph McTell, Fairport Convention, and John Martyn.
