The Harvey Girls - Declinate
SVC - 012
'Declinate' is the culmination of a year and a half of recording across three time zones, the guitars bend, the keyboards stand still, and the lyrics move from impression to declaration.
There is also a rather wonderful and quite frankly very moving recording of 'Whispering Hope' included. The song was originally written in 1868, but Hiram's Grandmother and sisters recorded it in 1941, whereupon it has been copied direct from the old scratchy 78rpm record. It's one of the most hauntingly beautiful things I've ever heard.
The whole EP can be downloaded for an absolute bargain at just One Pound, and all proceeds of this lovely EP will be donated to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network RAINN. So not only do you get some great music, but your hard earned cash is going to a very very good cause.
