Album review: ABI MOORE – Amoeba & Stone

Abi Moore - Amoeba & Stone

Honest Records [Release date 03.02.14]

The third album from independent Lincolnshire songstress Abi Moore is a rather pleasant affair.  Switching effortlessly between folk and Americana it should cement the growing reputation of a singer songwriter who’s had support slots for artists such as Midge Ure, LAU, Jim Moray and 10cc.

While her debut album The Aftermath of ’96 was released in 2006 to widespread acclaim, it was the follow up Things We Should Have Said in 2009 that saw wider exposure with Caffe Nero playing the album daily in all its UK stores and Abi playing 70 live Caffe Nero dates.

Ameoeba & Stone is a gentle well balanced set with a number of notable standouts – the alt/country ‘Nickajack Cave’ – an emotive number about Johnny Cash’s attempted suicide at Nickajack Cave in 1967, the wistful ‘Wishful Thinking’, and the soulful and Sade-esque ‘The Hardest Part’.

But don’t be put off by the café culture connotations – Amoeba & Stone is an excellent album that pays dividends on repeated listens and comes highly recommended to fans of the female singer songwriter genre.  ****
