Espers II CD
The second album release by Espers.
Espers ‘II’ is an album of precious gems, where gentle and fragile folk songs become eerie, otherworldly tales spun around acoustic guitar parts and Meg Baird’s unnervingly pure vocals. And where Meg brings light, fellow vocalist Greg Weeks’s brings darkness by deviating from the traditional folk template and letting rip with his Gibson Les Paul. With the addition of instruments such as doumbek and dholak, it’s a heady mixture of joy, wonder and humour that sets Espers apart, far-out there in fact, from their contemporaries.
Track list: 1. Dead Queen 2. Widow's Weed 3. Cruel Storm 4. Children Of Stone 5. Mansfield And Cyclops 6. Dead King 7. Moon Occults The Sun
