I agree with every word of this review......I think.... And if you became Brighton for England for years now that Portland is for the United States? The question can begin to take shape in a legal manner in front of the proposed new indie-folk from the town overlooking the English Channel and, like many of the artists of the Willkommen Collective (Laish, Leisure Society and many others) and the latest Galleons, ready to emerge after a few years of honest mess, spent a few scattered single cover for the network. The band in question is a quintet that meets the ironic name of The Self Help Group and made his debut for the long haul with the eleven tracks included in "Not Waving, But Drowning", articulated work but realized with an air of light and hinged on a plural form folk, which looks at the British tradition while mentioning the Appalachian with an eye to pop. Through a rich instrumental system (which includes light string arrangements, but also keyboards, banjo, xylophone and charrango) accents and a slight chorus that sees the leader and songwriter Mark Bruce flanked by the sweet voices of the sisters Clara and Sarah Natalie Wood, "Not Waving, But Drowning" is a brilliant representation of a tradition populated dusted off the light of a fine pop sensibility. The liveliness of the initial banda "Needles" and "Brother" screen easily in songs fireplace, dominated by vocal harmonies ("Jerome & Irving", "Fifth Man On The Moon") and brush from sliding melodies and arrangements always very measured , able to align the tracks from time to time to arcane settings and dreamy look crisp breezes or chamber-folk. It is in fact the whole complex of "Not Waving, But Drowning" to denote care realization and inspiration that can bring out the proposal of The Self Help Group among the many that on both sides of the Atlantic have now given rise to a complete folk revival of the language. A pleasant discovery.
