Wives of Farmers – Excellent Happiness Forever
Thanks to Wives of Farmers who directed me towards their new album. It’s well worth checking out. There’s a certain David Gedge quality to some of the vocals and an insistent guitar sound that’s immediately appealing. Standout tracks are perhaps ‘Gruff’ and ‘Modern Song’. In Helen Weeks, WoF share a band member with The Equatorial Group, who appeared on these very pages not so very long ago. Her vocals are a nice foil to the lead on a number of tracks. Excellent Happiness Forever is available at the appropriate Bandcamp page.
