Bain Wolfkind - The Swamp Angel (CD)
Release Date: 06/08/10
Reverb drenched tales of love, loss, betrayal & revenge with rocking ballads to down-tempo, psychedelic torch songs.
Australian songwriter and DER BLUTHARSCH member returns with an album, featuring 15 reverb drenched tales of love, loss, betrayal and revenge. Bain Wolfkind sounds like the misfit brother of Nick Cave with the spirit of Leonard Cohen. The Swamp Angel is inspired by a street gang that dominated New York's dockyards & harbours in the late 19 th century. Bain Wolfkind has gone in the direction of singer-songwriter whilst using sparse instrumentation, consisting of guitar, bass, harmonica, synthesizer, organ & electronic effects to create a gothic western atmosphere influenced by country and blues music. Adding a dark & raw voice creates a depressing atmosphere with an alienating effect which fans of Neo-folk will find to their liking. The songs of Bain Wolfkind breathe a nostalgic yet messed-up atmosphere, in which the influence of booze, drugs and a perverse mind have left its traces. Bain Wolfkind creates a world in which outcasts find a good place to dwell.
