Amoeba Review

08/02/2017

Bright Phoebus is one of those sparkling gems of an album that earns the title of “lost folk classic.” Recorded about 40 years ago by the brother/sister duo of Lal and Mike Waterson, the music is, at least on the surface, blissfully bucolic. But listen closer — the songs tell tales of vices, death, and strange townsfolk. One gets the sense that the Watersons have tapped into a deep vein of British folk music and folk tales, soaking up all those long-forgotten centuries of pagan folk weirdness. Thanks to this reissue, they should tap into a younger audience who cut their teeth on the freak folk scene.
