Smoke Notes

Formerly known as Storehouse, Rodwell has toured his eccentric take on ancient blues all around the traps in England, Europe and our own fair land for some years, but this is his album debut.

Unlike the song he once recorded on wax cylinder, this is aimed at a wider audience, but his vision remains undiluted: Rodwell tunes into the disregard of musical convention of early country-blues players and prison gospel hollerers, building on the inherent dissonance, the wilful examination of the guitar vernacular shorn of all the bluster and noxious rock moves so many white players have encumbered the genre with.

But despite its minimalist austerity and lo-res recording, Rodwell is a pragmatist, and the music swings.

This is no dry exercise in ethnomusicology but a subtle reinvention of the most daring and entertaining aspects of music styles long thought atrophied, and with just voice and guitar (and odd smatters of percussion), he wills it alive.
