On Tidal Blues, Alison Statton, Andrew Moxham, and a cast of other musicians lay out a selection of great traditional tunes that move from Latin-influenced feels to lounge touches to rustic country tinges. The result is a great listen, laying out all of these sounds in an unassuming, realistically produced, and largely simplistic style that's rather appealing. More importantly, the project's members never take the adopted styles as restrictions.
Alison Statton (vocals) and Spike Williams (violin, viola, guitar) were founder members of the band Weekend, formed in 1981 after the split of celebrated low-fi electronica pioneers Young Marble Giants. Between 1991 and 1997 they released the EP 'Weekend in Wales' and two studio albums, 'Tidal Blues' and 'The Shady Tree'.
