1 - MCGEE, KIRSTY - CONTRABAND - (CD) 
HOBOPOP


Borne of a turbulent year that saw McGee come close to giving up music for good, CONTRABAND is a defiant yet tender collection of songs. British singer and songwriter Kirsty McGee has been a full time musician since her 2002 debut (BBC Folk Award Nominee for Best Newcomer). Subsequent releases saw her grow in stature and reputation, gathering award nominations and wins along the way (BBC Folk Award Nominee 2005 for Best Original Song, IMA winner 2011 for Best Live Album), earning a life on the road and building a devoted following in the UK, across Europe and America. Over the course of five albums her folk beginnings evolved into 'hobopop' - her own description for her sound - a rootless, joyful stomp steeped in folk, jazz and old-time Americana.The resulting album is a transatlantic melting pot, reflecting the variety of skills they brought. CONTRABAND has songs that are pure pop (Something Going On), Waitsian Jazz (Setting of the Sun), Partonesque Country (Sequins) and ballads (Contraband). This is a work of contradictions - anger goes head to head with compassion, resignation sits alongside defiance. McGee rails against the cruelty of the world yet is utterly beguiled by its beauty and its gifts.

2 - MCGEE, KIRSTY - KANSAS SESSIONS - (CD) 
HOBOPOP


Kirsty McGee is a Manchester based singer-songwriter and guitarist. Early apprenticeship in various bands saw a later swing to folkier climes, but still keeping something of an edge to her lyrics. hobopop recordings is proud to present the kansas sessions, the fourth studio album of original songs from acclaimed uk singer-songwriter kirsty mcgee, produced and recorded under a hard mid-west winter in lawrence, kansas by mike west of truckstop honeymoon.The album results from a new phase of prosperous independence for mcgee and long term collaborator mat martin, but this glimpse into mcgees world shows the same diversity of lyricism she has consistently displayed throughout her catalogue. vagrancy, love, wanderlust, human frailty - all feature here as before, but this time the mix is made heady by the addition of more politicised material, including songs of war, greed, betrayal and corruption.From the groovy new orleans jazz beats of the anti-capitalist profit song to the dark intimacy of twisted ballads like sandman and dust devils, the kansas sessions finds kirsty making statements of real integrity within the rich tradition of original songwriting in which she is already well established. her trademark hobopop sound, setting edgy grooves against tender yet dark textures has grown in scope, encompassing what can only be described as a vaudebilly style - banjo, double bass, clarinet, trombone...
