Gwyneth Herbert – Clangers and Mash

NAME: Gwyneth Herbert
ALBUM: Clangers and Mash
DATE: 1November2010

LABEL: Naim Edge


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Jazz remixes add something new


LINE UP: Gwyneth Herbert – Vocals, and various musicians, remixers and engineers


WHAT’S THE STORY?: The Jazz singer-songwriter returns with an album of new remixes of her older songs. With just nine tracks, and only 33 minutes of music, this is more of an extended ep, but it covers a lot of ground. From the accappella version of Midnight Oil, with its haunted vocal performance which finishes the album, to the catchy radio edit of Perfect Fit, the release finds the vocal of Gwyneth Herbert in fine form, and although the fingerprints of the various remixers (which include Seb Roachford of Polar Bear fame, Temper D and Mr Solo and the Voluntary Bulter scheme) it is more of an easy collaboration than might have easily have been the case.

SOUNDS LIKE: any Jazz singer facing major sonic surgery. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but it is always interesting.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: you like two genres mix, and new people adding something to the mix of an already heady brew.
