A fine folk album with wonderful harmonies
Now on their ninth album, fans of Megson will be fully aware of what to expect from the husband and wife duo from Teeside – and they won’t be disappointed with their latest offering, ‘Contradicshun’. With expert harmonies aplenty, the gentle guitar instrumentals accompany the words in a delightful manner throughout the record. Of the 10 songs on the record, I Drew My Ship into the Harbour and Two Sides in Every Conversation are the two that leap out at you immediately, but it is the likes of Barrington Judo Cluband The New Girlthat really make a lasting impact and if you listen all the way through, it is these tracks that provide expert flow to the album. All four of the aforementioned songs feature impeccable melodies and demonstrate just how good the duo are at writing songs. For anyone out there interested in UK folk, this is a great record to get your teeth into.
