Joe Volk - Happenings & Killings (Glitterhouse)

With a history that takes in membership of Gonga and Crippled Black Phoenix, not to mention two solo albums on Invada, Joe Volk has certainly made his mark in Bristol’s alternative rock scene. On his third full-length release, he calls upon familiar co-conspirators such as Geoff Barrow, Ben Salisbury, Jim Barr and more besides to craft an album of rich songwriting that spans folk traditions and measured injections of electronics to make for an enthralling listen. Where previous efforts such as Derwent Waters Saint adhered to a strict tradition, Happiness & Killings is the sound of an artist spreading his wings in fine style.
