Album: Marry Waterson & Oliver Knight, Hidden (One Little Indian)


A second album by the late Lal’s chillun and it has Stratocaster and drums on it – not in a big or clumsy way, you understand, but in keeping with the familiar domestic pattern.

Actually, it’s true to say that some of the gestures in the direction of genre experiment – chiefly with swing and indie jangle – are the least interesting parts of the album musically, but they don’t significantly compromise the essential charm and glitchy poetry of the songcraft.
