Naevus - Soil

Naevus have tentative links with Leisurehive, Joanne Owens plays bass in both outfits. However Naevus appears to shine under the auspices of Lloyd James. Soil their second CD remains a rather good piece of work. Shimmering acoustic guitars augmented by a solid driven bass line and thunderclap percussion, and a singer whose distinctively English vocal sit someplace between David Tibet and John Lydon. The overall acoustic nature of the music may elicit comparisons with other dark folk outfits but Naevus appear free of the trapping of apocalyptic folk genre. Soil displays more idiosyncricies and it deserve a successful entry into the dark folk scene. Both Karl Blake and John Murphy are scheduled to contribute to a future Naevus release.
