:: Rasputina ::
21 January 2008 / No Label Required / Filthy Bonnet / 12 Trk CD
By Emily Slowlie

Ok folks – here we go – Chamber rock trio Rasputina align themselves to the freak-folk movement (cue Banhart and Newsom) and despite the group's obsession with period dress, their album of folky muse fuelled by classical strings is both compelling and distinctive . There’s a full sound too and effects are often liberally applied to the instruments alongside the driving bass parts and drum beats. The Beatle-esque “Cage In A Cave” is impressive. “The Pruning” is a hell of a song title, but it’s also a thrilling conclusion to what could be a ground breaking album.
