Josephine Foster & Band + Stuart Clark & Sarah Lucas + Edd Keene
Tuesday 23 October, doors 8pm
The wonderful singer-songwriter Josephine Foster (USA) tours her new album 'Blood Rushing' (Fire Records) showcasing her magnificent voice, swooping and swaying through the melodic arrangements of her band. American gothic, breathless folk and mountain music are all drawn upon by the band, with Spanish guitar maestro Victor Herrero channelling all kinds of colour and texture into proceedings. At the heart of the fulsome live sound - which also features Trembling Bells' Alex Neilson on drums and Paz Lenchantin from the Entrance Band/Silver Jews on bass/violin - will be Foster’s voice, evoking the nostalgic warmth and beauty of a phonograph.
'Blood Rushing' is an album that breathes new life into this old world: a celebration of myth making, with ancient images and themes of love, deserts and fire coursing through it like a river. A rock-ballet chante, the music is set to the meta-pulsing Pan-- American heartbeat of the Pueblo drum.
"endlessly compelling" Wire Magazine
'Her gainly vibrato and fireside intimacy place her in the company of illustrious dames of Americana such as Buffy Sainte-Marie and composer Ruth Crawford Seeger. ‘She Sweeps With Many Coloured Brooms’ is pure Another Side Of Bob Dylan, harmonica interludes and all' Rob Young, Uncut
