Pumajaw – Curiosity Box – CD
Freshly signed to Fire Records, Pinkie Maclure and John Wills (Pumajaw) combine Pinkie’s unique, multi-octave voice with looped guitar, mandolin, samples, concertina and hypnotic rhythms. Their own seductive sound stretches from psychedelic pop through sultry folk songs to eerie, cacophonous, trance-inducing laments. Live, they can create a surprisingly big racket for two people and have a reputation for taking the music into sonically adventurous realms of animalistic, ritualistic intensity. New album ‘Curiosity Box'[released this September] is their fifth and features guest appearances from Alasdair Roberts (Drag City) and James Yorkston (Domino).
