Boomkat Product Review:
New on Danielson's Sounds Familyre label comes this debut album by husband and wife team Ben and Vesper Stamper. The album is a co-production with label boss Daniel Smith and features contributions from all manner of friends and family members including some notable work by a certain Sufjan Stevens, who does a spot of singing in addition to contributing banjo, piano, oboe and recorder to name but a few instruments. While Sufjan was a fully-fledged collaborator on the recent Rosie Thomas album, he takes a comparatively understated role here - this is all very much Ben and Vesper's show, and it's an album composed from top class indie pop songwriting and elaborate multi-instrumental arrangements that keep each of the thirteen songs sounding fresh. Key to the success of the album is Ben's voice, which carries the kind of baritone gravitas you might hear in a young Scott Walker, which is at its best on a track like 'Vow Takers', when it's set against Vesper's soft, wispy tones. Beautiful.
