THE UNTHANKS Here's The Tender Coming (2009 UK 13-track CD album - Geordie folk inventors Rachel Unthank & The Winterset are back with a name tweak [The Unthanks], revised line-up and a new album. Following on from their Mercury Prize nominationfor 2007's 'The Bairns', the new album and line-up adds strings, horns and most arrestingly of all, drums and percussion for a much more developed, layered sound this time around. 'Here's The Tender Coming' is the usual Unthank mix of traditional songs, self-penned and songs written in the folk idiom - many imaginatively borrowed from writers little known outside the folk world and mostly from the North East of England. Yet this is not just folk - in 'Annachie Gordon' there are overtones of Steve Reich counterpoint, and the Beach Boys / Fleet Foxes playful harmony in opener 'Because He Was A Bonnie Lad'.

If there is only one this next decade, it could be 'Last'. Without doubt the most confident and important Unthanks album to date. 'Last' was made predominantly at the snowed-under Northumberland farmhouse that is home of Rachel and Adrian. Having made the highly successful 'Here's The Tender Coming'in a studio, the return to home recording might have signaled a move back to the intimacy of their earlier work, but in practice, 'Last' takes on the epic hallmarks of a masterpiece, in terms of the scale and atmosphere of the setting. It is a sound and scale that like 'Felton Lonin' from 'The Bairns', evokes the atmosphere of the landscape of Tyneside and Northumberland; the relationship anomaly between the bleak starkness and beauty of it's open spaces, between the peaceful landscape that is given an eerie quality by it's bloody and then industrial past) more...
