It's home-made heaven from Welsh-based duo
After a brief entanglement with the cruel world of the major labels, Jo and Danny retreated to their Welsh farmhouse and decided to do it themselves. Their third album, which takes its title from a Leonard Cohen line (“We are ugly but we have the music”), proves the wisdom of their decision by sounding like 2003’s equivalent of Fairport’s What We Did On Our Summer Holidays or The Waterboys’ Fisherman’s Blues. Folk flavours, Celtic fringes, subtle touches of electronica, lovely vocals and wonderfully simple but beguiling tunes?you can almost hear them smiling.
