REVIEW: Fair Maiden - Fair Maiden
The project started way back in 2008, with Ellen Carey, a veteran of several other bands, working on some songs. They've incubated over time, and attracted other musicians -- Ellen's brother Joel Carey and Liam Kenny in the past, Steph Crase, Hamish Baird and Noah Renolds in the present. The album's influences can be found in the folk and pop of the '60s, but Carey's eclectic songwriting, thematic choices and dark sense of humor result in a timeless and thoroughly enjoyable album. Buy it, play it, it will make you happy.
Fair Maiden is out now via Bedroom Suck Records, and via Fire Records by arrangement with BSR in the Northern Hemisphere. You can stream the entire album at the Bandcamp link below.
