SUÍ VESAN – Merging with the Brook
World Village, 2006

WORLD FOLK – She grew up in Czechoslovakia, but her style is of no particular place. Vesan plays guitar and sings for the most part, but she’s been known to invent instruments and even her own language. Her voice is free and unpredictable: almost punkishly intense at some times, softly sweet at others. She’s joined by her husband (also on guitar & percussion). A very odd little record that should appeal to fans of offbeat indie-folk. No FCCs.

Fo’s Picks: 2, 4, 5, 8 but all nice

1. 2:47 – simple drum beat, catchy guitar strumming, vocal plain and loud
2. 4:24 – very loose guitar duet: a pretty tune, big vocal, surging rhythm in parts
3. 2:27 – simple kalimba (thumb piano) line carries gentle vocal
4. 5:00 – Native American sound: wood(?) flute & guitar, storytelling vocal style
5. 3:06 – thumping percussion, vocal is part sing-song, part spoken
6. 5:09 – girlish vocal gets loud, guitar runs in circular patterns
7. 7:15 – moody guitar duet, vocals all over the map, babbling brook sounds
8. 4:53 – singing into a tube? walking guitar pattern, thumb piano, light perc.
9. 2:35 – upbeat folk-pop sound, rolling rhythm, curious vocal (lots of words)
10. 5:42 – little pattern floats to zero, then a gentle, playful (but weird) midnight tune
