Peter Rainbird - Dust: Fragments From A Journey (own label)
Album review by Mike Davies of NetRhythems.com -British music press January 2008
"Ladies and gentlemen, will you please be upstanding for the first great album of 2008. Of Irish-Nordic extraction, Rainbird cut his teeth playing the London clubs, the coffee houses of LA and San Francisco and any number of dispiriting venues on tours across the UK, Ireland and Canada. Recorded with Bob Lanois (brother of Daniel), his debut release, the four track Dust EP, picked up BBC radio play but failed to generate much interest. Undaunted, Rainbird bid London farewell and returned to Toronto to work on a full length album. Recruiting musicians that, among others, included legendary bassist Tony Levin, percussionist and tabla player Pete Lockett and drummer Paul Brennan, he set to work crafting the material that now appears here, two songs recurring from the EP, two reworked from the Instinct Overides EP sold during the early tours, with six previously unavailable numbers.
Often evocative of Bruce Cockburn in his warm folk-tinged soaring vocals and the textured arrangements of the songs, but also with atmospheric hints of Peter Gabriel and Daniel Lanois, the album's imbued with a burnished spirituality, sensuous physical images, a sense of those wide open Canadian spaces and a deep, soulful yearning.
There's two non-originals. Waiting For A Miracle is Rainbird's new seven minute setting of Cohen's lyrics, the chiming guitars conjuring an atmosphere that can best be described as the musical equivalent of the aurora borealis. The second is a dark, plangent guitar and percussive rumbling treatment of the traditional She Moved Through The Fair, a heady brew given deeper intoxication courtesy of Lori Anna Reid's harmony duet. Her voice figures too on Burn, a song of swirling sexual desire with lyrics by Sharon Lewis.
Everything else is pure Rainbird, opening with the magnificent, widescreen chiming soulful folk rock of Circling taking supplicant's wings to the heavens with its vivid images of beads of sweat on exposed skin before moving on through the tumbling melodies and aching chorus of the spine-shivering Stand In Beauties Way and the Eastern-shaded musical palette of Wings & Weapons with its mantra rhythms, throaty guitar and tabla.
Completing the picture with tenderly bruised swaying ballad Opium Mouth, the shimmering night sky patterns and lullabying crescendos of When We Arrive, a bluesily, muscular folk rock Altogether Elsewhere and the climactic, open heart and welcome hands minor key anthemics of Come In, this persuasively claims its place in the debut albums hall of fame and fully deserves to earn Rainbird the international acclaim that is his due."
