Rebecca and Simon Rosellys are rapidly carving themselves a strong reputation on the British and American scenes. This was my first opportunity to appreciate the music they make and appreciate it I certainly did.

Whether you try to label it alt folk or Americana or roots, at the end of the day it's a fine album with our without a badge of convenience to fit a musical perception. Like many of the songs, the opener A Thousand Miles is written as a result of shared experience; a drive from Nashville to deepest darkest Texas, and one imagines these experiences have shaped the bond between band members which creates the overall sound.

There are some exquisite lyrics on this album, not least on Maryland which pays tribute to the lost genius of the wonderful Eva Cassidy. Asheville 1784 cleverly relates the apparently true story of a soldier killed in a skirmish with the Cherokee and how his wife and baby fare thereafter. But don't assume the album might be a tad on the intense side throughout because it isn't; there are a number of styles and influences here resulting in an enjoyable three quarters of an hour of listening pleasure. I really warmed to the up-tempo It's Not Me It's You – an observant take on the relationship break up situation and the highly commercial sound of Rose Tinted Glasses which explores the vagaries of friendships.

While The Rosellys have a pedigree of their own the list of guest musicians is also impressive with Hannah and Alex Elton-Wall from The Redlands Palomino Company pitching in along with Rebecca's Ma and Pa Helena and Michael Rosewell adding nice touches of piano and cello respectively. The recording process at a Gloucestershire studio was apparently “organic and slow” with the production process allowing individual songs to develop rather than have any time constraints influence the finished product.

I liked the album although I confess to slight reservations about the Pink Floyd – esque ending to Memories Of You And Me which I felt added little other than about a minute to a decent song. Nevertheless we will I feel sure be hearing more from The Rosellys and that in itself will be no bad thing.
