Bridie O'Brien- The Caribbean Seesions
"The Caribbean Sessions is as sun-dappled and languid as the island of Anguilla, where it was recorded. The album was created by O’Brien and drummer, producer and enabler Syd Green – the same dynamic duo behind Highway Heart ­– and recorded in various rooms across the island, including a haunted plantation house and a hand-built church. O’Brien arrived with an acoustic guitar and not much else. She borrowed a beautiful black electric guitar from a local boy called Romano and her and Green made percussion from rum bottles, cutlery and other home-made percussives. Like true future-primitives they used pebbles and they used iPhone apps. They made music from whatever was at hand. Toilet-roll trumpets show up on the recording, as does the ubiquitous Caribbean steel pan drum which adds its bird-like bell song to all six tracks.

It’s heavy but it is a love song, a song of friendship." [Read More...]
