The Carrier by Large Plants is out now on LP, CD and all digital channels. The heavyweight vinyl LP version comes with full colour inner and free download card, and the CD comes packed in a six panel digi-pack.
The Carrier is a succinct distillation of folk-rock magnificence.
A fine slice of haunted (and hauntological) folk rock.
captures the moment when the post-hippie comedown was chiselled into Deep Purple granite… Effortlessly magical.
Hung with Baroque curlicues of English wood-smoke, the title cut from the upcoming LP, The Carrier lets the listener into Large Plants’ world softly. Like slipping through a mossen dell and into a secret garden of sound.
RAVEN SINGS THE BLUES
The Carrier comes across like a late-’60s soundtrack to an underground biker film that occasionally veers towards horror – Uneasy Rider, perhaps?
The Carrier is an impressive package all round, and one that could easily end up on a few Album of the Year lists.
WE ARE CULT
It follows on from the band’s hugely successful debut single, La Isla Bonita in December of last year (Shindig magazine’s Single of the Year). Ten brillinat psych-folk-rock three minuters are filtered through a haze of tape flutter and lent a distinct folk sensibility by Jack Sharp’s delicate and distant voice; like the smell of winter mornings and fresh soil blended with the whiff of petrol.
