Info: Eagle - UK press reviews

fotka
UNCUT (UK) - 4/5
....there are echoes of renegade, occidental neo-country, from Woody Guthrie onwards in these songs...'Eagle' is terrific, and questions every assumption about "country" and geography in popular music.

FINANCIAL TIMES (UK)
China may not seem an obvious homeland for Bluegrass, but the plains of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region were grassy enough to inspire Mamer...

THE INDEPENDENT (UK)
Mamer, has been christened the Lou Reed of the grasslands. A cult figure on Beijing's music scene, he's blended Western rock and electronica with the music he grew up with: throat-singing, the Jew's harp and flute, plus gently trotting vocal lines by men who grew up in the saddle. Irresistible.

fRoots (UK)
This is a lovely and deceptively simple album that reveals ever more of its layered charms with each listen...

FINANCIAL TIMES (UK) – 4/5
China may not seem an obvious homeland for Bluegrass, but the plains of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region were grassy enough to inspire Mamer...

LONDON EVENING STANDARD (UK) – 4/5
This is music for a road movie evoking endless space and roaming horses...

DAILY TELEGRAPH (UK)
There’s a gentle dignity to singer Mamer’s incantatory strumalongs ...creates a pleasing sense of warmth and intimacy...

THE OBSERVER (UK)
The mood is sensual and contemplative, with Mamer's low voice framed in a cleverly produced kaleidoscope of guitars, hand drums, jaw harp, flute and the odd electronic bleep. Banjo wizard Béla Fleck also shows up to trade licks on 'Celebration'. A lovely, original and haunting creation.
