Geoff Berner – The Wedding Dance Of The Widow Bride

Here, Geoff goes full-on even more awesome on this record (with Wayne Adams and Diona Davies), all regalia and sadness, colourful poetry and shouted desires, sweeping emotion and caution to the wind. 

Weep, Bride, Weep, Widow Bride, Traitor Bride  might suggest a fixation. Yet the crazy swirl of The Fiddler Is A Good Woman, Would It Kill You?, and Song To Reconcile tie it all together. And I love the Tom Waits clank and pomp of Queen Victoria (“I want ornaments on everything!”). Really, the whole record is amazing.

I love this.

    I have this one (and a couple of others!) but I must admit to not having given it much attention! I’ll make a point of giving this a whirl.
