Mad Mackerel Recommends…Jenee Halstead

Mad Mackerel Recommends...Jenee Halstead.

Jenee Halstead’s album Raised  By Wolves is released on 13th August.

It has taken us a while to get round to listening to it, and in all honesty part of that was overcoming the terrible cover, which unfortunately looks like something from Narnia. Perhaps a rejected promo for a straight-to-DVD version of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe.

However like the wardrobe and the treasures it hides, such it is with Raised By Wolves. Get past the cover and it is actually a record of dark-hearted Americana with plenty of twists and turns of its own. Mysteries abound throughout, as does grief and melancholy, obsession and passion and frustrated emotions. There is folk, surf guitars, synths and reverb, electronics and banjos, and it all combines into a most deceptively enjoyable and compelling listen.

The album is available from her Bandcamp page here.
