Story - Tale Spin (Mega Blowout Sale)

"The Story is a duo comprising Martin Welham (leader of acid folk legends Forest) and his multi-instrumentalist son Tom. Having honed their melodic brand of psych-tinged acoustic pop for several years, they have at last prepared a full-length collection. Written and recorded in the depths of the English countryside, Tale Spin is a delightful album that's sure to appeal to fans of Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and Espers as well as older names like Donovan, the Incredible String Band, COB and Vashti Bunyan."

"Delightful acoustic folk music with a creepy psychedelic air and arcane lyrics, featuring guitars, flutes, churning background instruments, stunning harmony vocals and lyrics. The work of a master"

"All tracks have a true and honest end of 60s feel - dual vocals, acoustic guitars and beautiful harmonies - without any 'neo'-expression. Tom Welham's guitar style and vocals bring to mind Syd Barrett at his most sober/normal"

Average Rating

These are great albums by former Forest leader and his son whose voices are so similar and harmonious that it sounds like Martin's voice is over-dubbed twice, when it's just the guy's natural harmony in singing! Great material played with graceful moves. Wonderful overlooked albums of neo-folk.
