Following on from a post made yesterday, here’s a review of Pascal Babare’s Thunderclap Spring that I wrote for The Line of Best Fit:
Pascal Babare may only be nineteen years of age, but with this record he manages to blow away a lot of the preconceptions that comes with being a young, solo musician. Whilst contemporaries happily strum along to half-stolen melodies at unsigned nights, the young Australian has managed to forge a genre almost completely all of his own making. Sitting elegantly somewhere between shoegaze, new-millennium folk and traditional singer-songwriters, Thunderclap Spring is an inspired work that often borders on genius.
