Boomkat Product Review:
Fact fans will be keen to note that London band Wolf People are the very first British band to sign to Jagjaguwar. The quartet are fronted by Jack Sharp, a veritable historian of British rock music made between the sixties and seventies. Amazingly, the recordings that make up this album were all self-recorded in Bedford between 2005 and 2009, but the attention paid to recreating all the details and recording quirks of the era is mind-boggling. Tidings sounds like something from the prog or Canterbury scenes from forty years ago - and that's a high compliment: the level of musicianship and craft evident on this record are all too scarce in our digital age, and the labours of Sharp and his colleagues are to be highly commended. Kindred spirits of Voice Of The Seven Woods or Six Organs Of Admittance, Wolf People take levels of classic psych-rock devotion to a whole other level. Four of the tracks collected here have previously surfaced via the Finders Keepers offshoot label, Battered Ornaments, including the still awesome 'October Fires' and 'Cotton Strands' - an amazing period piece whose flurried, Ian Anderson-aping flutes are very much in-keeping with the codpiece-wearing spirit of Jethro Tull. Also of note is that the main songs on the record are joined via fragmented interlude tracks, compounding the illusion that you're playing back this most wonderfully anachronistic of records via a haunted old tape machine. Ace.
