Boomkat Product Review:
The Family Elan is the solo venture from Glaswegian Chris Hladowski (of Scatter and The One Ensemble) who showcases his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and scholar of mediaeval folk disciplines. Hladowski lays down some accomplished lute rags on 'All Around', which sit nicely alongside some sprightly fiddle work and a line in percussion that has more than a hint of maypoles and morris dancing about it. Hloadowski calls upon Hanna Tuulikki, his bandmate in side project Nalle, for some supplementary woodwind on a couple of tracks. Particularly effective is Tuulikki's contribution to 'Wide Eyed Fox' which sounds authentically like some long-lost '70s Brit folk fusion record thanks to her meandering recorder, intertwining with skilful guitar passages and elaborate, jazzy cymbal exercises.
