Debut album from New Zealand singer / songwriter. Aldous Harding has been wowing and amazing audiences around New Zealand for the last 3-5 years. This self titled album is her debut album release. Her music has been the best thing that has ever happened to wayfaring loners that shuffle into bars at the wrong times of day. She has been the saviour of those falling in home-cooked opium furrows. She has kept sailors in check with cheek and a strong-songed tongue. And now she will be all yours for an album length period of time, and you may have your picnic and feast upon the music. So lucky one, close your eyes. Turn your nose towards water. Settle in. Listen to this one closely. This is folk music, simple and bleak (not unlike Melbourne's own gothic country band, Jimmy Tait), with Harding's fragile coo reminiscent of retiring, 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs.
