Fence Collective affiliates Love.Stop.Repeat create a willowy, alt-folk sound, a beguiling mix of guitars, harmonium, accordion, ukulele and banjo. Lindsay West provides the sweet vocals, Dave Millar the intricate instrumentation. A beautiful voice and a beautiful sound. As the accordion and harmonium wheeze and a guitar is plaintively played you can't help but be caught up in West and Millar's trip. Having performed shows alongside King Creosote, James Yorkston and other Fence Collective regulars the duo hit the road this Spring in support of their current mini-album, including a return to Fence's annual Homegame Festival in April with Malcolm Middleton, Adem and more.
Their self-titled debut has received national airplay, including BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, and has attracted the following reviews and comments:
"…'09's most deserving of 'doing a Marling'. The gently finger-picked guitars and weeping accordions on 'Secrets And Slumber' and 'The New York Song' may be sparse and slight but their arrangements are purposeful. Singer Lindsay West's honeydew pipes, meanwhile, evoke a young Joni Mitchell. She's little short of a revelation…" NME
"…lovingly packaged nu-skool folk - and very nice it is too" Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 2)
"…this is really lovely" Guy Garvey (BBC 6Music / Elbow)
The duo are also working on a follow up to this with a full-length release due later this year.
