Maw and Paw- Xox Le Roq Review
Bona Fide Studios
I was walking down an avenue lined with cherry blossom trees under a deep blue sky on a sunny afternoon. Or at least I felt I was whilst listening to Xox Le Roq by Maw And Paw. I suppose the style of this CD could be described as fairly light-hearted rock/pop, with a touch of folk, creating a hazy flower child kind of aura. Recorded in 2003, Xox Le Roq might be the sort of CD you think of listening to on a Sunday afternoon; a CD to wind down the weekend with whilst lying on a sofa full of big cushions. Deb King's drifting, blissful vocals are distant and alluring, creating an offhand, carefree dance with the lyrics of each song. Breathy and fairly trebly, King's voice has similarities to the main vocalist from Australian dance producer, Herbert's, album, Bodily https://www.tradebit.come may beg to differ, but the style of the guitar and drum tracks sound vaguely Radiohead-esque. Possibly the synths as well. Such a comment could only be a compliment, as the lazy, dragging-of-feet drums on a couple of the tracks (most noticeable in Time) echo the track No Surprises by the highly acclaimed band on their third album, OK Computer. In saying this, I also feel the band may have been influenced by Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks, evident in their final song, Monterey. There's a bit of a hippy vibe floating around this CD, especially the first track, One Like This. If I were to pick out the song I would consider most successful as a single, I feel Another Reason is probably the most widely appealing due to its easy-going, happy acoustic sound. The only slight criticism I have about this CD is that the recording is a bit too bright for my ears. There seems to be a lot of hiss on each track due to some erroneous high frequencies. Although this may go unnoticed, it could prove taxing on the ear after a while (more so through headphones) even though there are just six tracks on the CD. Apart from the one quibble, I enjoyed listening to this CD. It's sunny, but thoughtful lyrics and music allow you to drift through the six songs, leaving the listener surprised when the CD seems to end so quickly.
Review of Maw and Paw - XOX Le Roq
I first heard this band on a whim-they sent me an e-mail about their band and I figured I'd give it a listen via their website which I rarely do due to time constraints. But I did and was fascinated by the beautiful vocal crooning on "One Like This" by singer Deb King. Now I have the whole CD! I had no idea that indeed that song was an indication of how good the rest of the album was. They make unbelievable rock/pop with spacey atmospheres courteous of keyboardist Tim Power whose grandfather apparently was a seafaring Irishman who would sing more than one sea chanty. It's almost as if they took a cue from either that influence or being near the Pacific Ocean because for some reason their hooks and melodies flow over you like a gentle tide. I hope they don't change anything because they could literally write a thousand songs exactly like those that are contained within these six tracks and I'd be happy. Talk about Desert Island Discs, this is one of them. I don't have a prayer of expressing how great this album is so just take my word for it and go out on a whim and purchase it now!
