Talons' 'Songs For Boats' Distro

Limited Edition and comes with downloads of the LP and of Lost Ships

A follow up to one of our favourite recent LPs, Songs For Babes, which is long sold out, so we're extremely happy to have 50 copies for EU distribtuion of Songs For Boats.

"Talons' is primarily Mike Tolan (Trouble Books, Six Parts Seven, Mustache Mountain). Positive Beat is pleased to present Talons' latest work 'Songs for Boats' on LP (coming on March 29th 2011). 'Songs for Boats' is an album of love songs at the end of the world. It is a new folk music made to resonate now rather than endure for decades. Written while Mike was living/studying in Spain and the world was sliding into recession, these boat songs came into being as he wondered how he would get home once the world fell apart. 'Songs for Boats' was recorded at home in Akron, Ohio throughout 2010 with the help of friends whose contributions in the form of varied acoustic instruments, woodwinds and lapsteel create a delicate world within which the songs come alive, sway, and pull themselves along towards humble, hopeful ends." - Positive Beat Recordings
