[2008] Nalle - First Eden Sank to Grief

listen to the song:

Nalle is Glasgow based band feat. Hanna Tuulikki. Alongside Chris Hladowski (bouzouki, saz, clarinet et al) and Aby Vulliamy (viola, piano, voice et al) the songs are built around Hanna’s unbridled vocals and guitar playing, with occasional sojourns on recorder and Finnish kantele. Recent recordings have also seen Nalle expand to include Ben Reynolds on harmonica and double bass, Raymond MacDonald on sax, Peter Nicholson on double bass and Alex Neilson on Drums. The music draws on a whole gamut of musical traditions, weaving instrumental tapestries around hypnotic, almost ballad-like vocal narratives, cultivating a deeply personal and idiosyncratic approach that outweighs the sum of its parts.

Hanna Tuulikki and Chris Hladowski, who are both playing in a the UK band "the Family Elan", will delight us with a magic Incredible String Band-like track for an upcomming psychedelic compilation on Merlins Nose Records.
