Barrule (MAN) are a fully acoustic trio from the Isle of Man. They come with a unique, stupendously big, fat sound – how do they do it with that lineup? – and simply great material, most of it sung in the island’s original language, Manx.
I love their strong groove and the amazing sound they produce: good for both listening and stomping your foot to. They can handle the softer side of things as well; the song “Langness” on their first album is a little gem, a perfectly written tale of history, capital – and golf. They have two albums out so far, here’s wanting so much more!
