Daylight Music, Union Chapel, 03/04/10

I was at the Union Chapel earlier today to see another Daylight Music session, this time featuring artists selected by Manchester label Little Red Rabbit.

First up was five piece Samson & Delilah with their undeviating, pastoral-tinged, contemporary English folk comprising flute, accordion, double bass, guitar and percussion. Second was Kalbakken with their yearning Norwegian folk songs. 

Most impressive however were Last Harbour whose set of dark, shadowy atmospherics coupled with gloriously sombre vocal articulations and emotive strings recalled Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, or possibly even Tindersticks, if they had eschewed their later soulful excursions in favour of a more forbidding path.
