Brighton based folk label Woodland Recordings has just put out their 31st release, and it comes from one of my favourite local artists; The Great Park - the solo work of Stephen Burch. The album is called If You Can Hold It You Can Throw It and is now available to buy from their website here:
Recorded in Berlin between April and August and featuring fellow Brightonian folk musicians Birdengine and Fee Reega - this has 9 songs dragged out with acoustic guitars, electric guitars, foot stamping, melodica, chains, old shoes and a trumpet street band.
The label are giving away a free teaser mp3 of Song For A Coalman, a song written especially for a Dutch museum. Download it here:
The albums have been pressed in an initial limited edition of 100 numbered copies with printed lyric sheets and thought up things to stamp on each CD. This label specialises in gorgous homespun packaging which is always worth owning, but if you miss out on the physical copies
you can download the uncompressed audio in pretty any much any digital format you want for just £5 from The Great Park's Bandcamp here:
