Review: 'Plumhall'
'The Ghost of Noise'   

-  Genre: 'Folk' -  Release Date: '8th May 2020'

Our Rating:
Plumhall is the quasi-portmanteau-monikered project Michelle Plum (formerly of Chumbawamba) and Nick Hall (formerly of Magna Carta and The Hall Brothers), with the assistance ommulti-instrumentalist producer David Crickmore and drummer Andy Peacock

There’s not even a hint of noise or its ghost on the dozen songs here, which conform to a broad blueprint of 70s radio-friendly rock with hints of folk and country. The songs are neatly crafted and easy on the ear.

Alternating lead vocal duties and combining to create some moving and magical melodies, and compositionally, the arrangements are subtly detailed, and there are some synthy doodles in the mix in places, as on ‘Fire Next Time’.

‘South to Glory’ has a lolloping drum beat and hints of Fleetwood Mac, and the pair exchange tense dialogue in the mid-section, creating a strong dynamic.

‘The Ghost of Noise’ is an accomplished work, and remarkably even in quality, making for a solid album.
