“Conrad blew around the world for years as the bass player in Shooglenifty, but remains restlessly explorative. In Stringjammer he’s the singing captain of a changeable crew of musical pirates who have bonded in their disrespect of frontiers . Frets folktronica, free reeds and fiddle , rolling rhythms, Latin jazz licks, country blues and quirky percussion come and go with the mists in just half a dozen myth and dream laden songs. It’s winsome, clever stuff and you won’t resist the urge to smile.”
Norman Chalmers, Scotland on Sunday.
