WINTER JOURNEY

THIS IS THE SOUND OF THE WINTER JOURNEY

TIMBRELAND


Format: CD
Cata No: TMBR012
Barcode: N/A
The Winter Journey are Anthony Braithwaite and Suzy Mangion, a gentle duo out of place in Manchester, England who create gorgeous music in their drawing room as if it were only yesterday. Their album is a perfect eleven songs of vintage warmth and homely welcomes that could only be made from a collection of music recorded by hand on birthdays, Christmases and other days of rest. Musically we get drawn through their land of pastoral finger picked guitar, village hall harmonies, magical zither minimalism and even a touch of tap dancing. Lyrically we're invited to a meeting of philosophical minds and personal metaphysical ruminations that inspire a deeper understanding of the world that we've perhaps forgotten. Anthony has written all of the songs and wears his influences with pride ? McCartney melodies, Serge Gainsbourg, Elliot Smith ballads, Beach Boy harmonies, The Carter Family, even a little Krautrock ? all with a friendly intelligence. He's even been described as the Stephen Fry of folk music. The first 500 copies are packaged in a hand made, hand stamped and numbered limited edition. Both Suzy and Anthony were previously in the band George who released albums on Pickled Egg Records gathering plaudits including Pitchfork?s Top 50 albums of 2003 and they have toured with A Hawk and A Hacksaw. Suzy releases records under her own name and has sung on records by Piano Magic, Arbol and Big Eyes Family Players.
