GLARC celebrates the return of Glasgow based musician Quinie, aka Josie Vallely, releasing her second album Buckie Prins.
Quinie digs deeper into her Scots song excavations, with a style inspired by the traditions of Scottish Traveller singers Lizzie Higgins (1929-1993) and her mother Jeannie Robertson (190-1975); amalgamating sean nos style melodies, children’s rhyme, story poems and snippets of more traditional tunes to create a bleak and extended blur of narratives routed in an imagined Scotland. Whereas Quinie’s eponymous first album was largely acapella, Buckie Prins sees her accompanied by Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Oliver Pit and Neil McDermott. They bring a musicality to the tracks that combines minimalist tension, foundations of drone, stabbing atonal noise, and choppy medieval repetition.
Sparse, haunting songs in the British folk tradition of June Tabor with experimental drones & atmospherics that remind me of the quiet side of Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love" LP. A wedding between Gaelic/Celtic folk music and "Hearts of Space" new age music. Several dark Christmas carols. Perfect for NPR radio fans. Art Fin
