1994 release. Howth Castle were an Italian male/female duo who played an exotic brand of acid-wind folk. They released one LP around 1990 that caused a big ruckus when it was discovered a few years later (in certain very small circles). This is their follow up, co-released by the Italian Blu Bus Label & Northampton's Father Yod. The main instrumentation is acoustic guitar and vocals with occasional accompaniment (electric guitar, keyboards, saxophone, trumpet, etc.). Female vocalist Lalli has a unique, deep voice that can really scatter time (once compared to "a cross between Marianne Faithfull ca. Broken English and Nico in duet with Vince Martin backed by the Temple Creatures"), and the band's use of odd, non-traditional elements helps blur the wind with this as well.
