Esce ufficialmente a fine luglio ma lo si può prenotare già da oggi: Earth Felt The Wound è il secondo album che Kate Westbrook produce con la sua Granite Band nel giro di pochi mesi, ed è una meraviglia. Con Kate, autrice di tutti i testi che qui intessono un ciclo tematico a sé stante pur con numerosi riferimenti a precedenti capitoli, ci sono Roz Harding, Jesse Molins, Matthew North, Billie Bottle, Mike Westbrook - autore delle musiche - e Coach York.

Earth Felt the Wound - its title a quote from Milton’s Paradise Lost - is an album of extremes, from the intimate to the epic, from the tenderness of the Rossini ballad Once Upon a Time to the rock histrionics of Drowned in the Flood. It opens with with one of Westbrooks’ most lyrical songs The Streams of Lovely Lucienne and closes with the exuberant comedy of Rooster Rabelais. Elsewhere Kate’s lyrics examine the contemporary issues of climate change and threats to the planet. The song at the heart of the album, Storm Petrel takes its title from the tiny seabird that spends its life on the ocean, while beneath its dancing feet sea levels are rising.
