Stanley Brinks and The Old Time Kaniks – Monique

Posted: December 8, 2016 in Acoustic, Folk, Music

Stanley Brinks – aka André Herman Düne – returns with the new double album Vieilles Canieques / Nouvelles Caniques, the follow up to 2016’s Record Store Day Release Turtle Dove.

Once again he is joined by the Norwegian folk collective The Kaniks, this time stripped back to a two piece of fiddle and banjo, hence The Old Time Kaniks. This double album of modern day folk tales of love, loss and mischief was recorded on a remote island outside the small town of Egersund in south west Norway. Over the course of a week of midnight sun, midnight swims and midnight beers on their isolated rocky island, they lived and worked in the only building there, the now-unmanned mid 19th century Vibberodden lighthouse.

Listen to Monique below – a classic piece of Brinks storytelling: two and a half minutes of tales of drinking, smoking and heartbreak.
