Large Plants - The Carrier LP
Large Plants - The Carrier LP ( Ghost Box/UK)
The Carrier by Large Plants is out on 22nd April. It follows on from their hugely successful debut single, La Isla Bonita in December of last year. (Shindig magazine’s Single of the Year.) Ten psych rock belters are filtered through a haze of tape flutter and lent a distinct folk sensibility by Jack Sharp’s delicate and distant voice; like the smell of winter mornings and fresh soil blended with the whiff of petrol. Designed by Julian House, the heavyweight vinyl LP version comes with full colour inner sleeve and free download card. – Ghost Box
A fine slice of haunted (and hauntological) folk rock.
The Carrier is a succinct distillation of folk-rock magnificence.
captures the moment when the post-hippie comedown was chiselled into Deep Purple granite… Effortlessly magical.
Hung with Baroque curlicues of English wood-smoke, the title cut from the upcoming LP, The Carrier lets the listener into Large Plants’ world softly. Like slipping through a mossen dell and into a secret garden of sound.
RAVEN SINGS THE BLUES
The Carrier comes across like a late-’60s soundtrack to an underground biker film that occasionally veers towards horror – Uneasy Rider, perhaps?
The Carrier is an impressive package all round, and one that could easily end up on a few Album of the Year lists.
