Review: 'BASKERY'
'V: End Of The Bloodline'   

-  Label: 'Mother Tarantula Records'
-  Genre: 'Alt/Country' -  Release Date: '27th October 2023'-  Catalogue No: 'MOALP005'

Our Rating:
Baskery is three sisters - Sunniva, Greta and Stella Bondesson - from Stockholm who harmonise in English over six-string banjo, upright bass, acoustic- and electric guitars and drums.

They signed WBR bros (Los Angeles) in 2014 but since 2018 the trio have been based in Europe.

V: End of the Bloodline is their fifth studio album and, after delays caused by the pandemic, it is the first in five years. It was recorded in a secluded Devon farmhouse and produced by Sean Lakeman, brother of Seth who plays viola on two tracks: Wolf Hook and Abracadabra.

One track of the twelve is entitled A Little Goes A Long Way and this is also a fair description of the record as a whole.

It doesn’t delve much deeper than the final track, Birds Of Passage, which contains the whimsical lines: ”I wish I had feathers and wings/So I could do all those birdie lil things.

Smoky blues combine with Emmylou Harris style country-folk melodies but, while it’s lively, catchy and fairly easy on the ear, it lacks the X factor.
