In a 2008 article in Mojo magazine, Paul Weller raved about a new band called Trembling Bells. What he said and what I heard, were two different things. I wish I could tell you exactly what he said or what I remember hearing, but I can't. I just know I didn't care for it.
Ten years later, Trembling Bells has a new record called "Dungeness." It is their fifth and it comes out on Friday, though you can get it now on Bandcamp. I heard a track yesterday that I loved. It is right in my British folk and psych wheelhouse, and I'm telling you, if I heard this in 2008, I would have been raving about it. Apparently, the band has been employed as backing band for current incarnations of both Kaleidoscope and the Incredible String Band.
It's all about timing, I guess. I'm going to be busy catching up on Trembling Bells.
