"After more than five years, three LPs and several 7" singles as 'Appendix Out', Scottish singer and man of letters Alasdair Roberts is bidding farewell to his nom-demusique (but fortunately not his raison-d'ĂȘtre!). Heavily steeped in the lineage of European folk music (the Scots have something to say about this, you know), the words and music of Farewell Sorrow evoke a spirit of youth, an air of reckless abandon, a passion not meant to stay in this world. Sure, there are still a couple of the dirges you might expect, but they're now enlivened with a subtly malevolent, rakish wit and nestle alongside bona fide pop songs detailing the lighter side of life in Alasdair's imaginary kingdom."
