The Flumes – Sweet Sweet Rain
Little Boom, Tuesday, 5 August 2014 By Lloyd Thompson
“Before hearing the latest album by The Flumes – Sweet, Sweet Rain, I would have considered the harp to be a niche instrument. This album changes everything.
The Flumes have with them an impressive release, this album flows, it’s well mastered and the musicians are deep in the groove delivering the goods. Kayt Wallace, lead vocalist and electric harpist weaves her lyrics over tight down-tempo and funky rhythms. The bass grooves over a crisp drumline holding down the backline.
The title track Sweet, Sweet Rain is one to look out for mid album, but one of the most catching of the tracks is Moonsong. It uses simple hooks and the sparse minimal touches over Kayt’s smoky vocals just work, not to mention that grooving solo.
The Flumes hail from Northern Queensland and this release almost takes me there, some of the instrumental numbers sample the rainforest sounds that one becomes accustomed to in the far north. And I like nothing better than an album that plays well through. From the first track to the last this band weave you around their finger and take you on trip into those exotic and not so distant lands.
It’s great to hear a cohesive album rich with new ideas and new twists. There is also something intangibly great about them being from out own shores. I would predict a good future for these guys if they keep pushing the envelope with these already high standards”.
Thanks heaps Lloyd! We love it when someone really gets it 😉
