Josephine Foster & The Victor Herrero Band LP Perlas today

Following their album of Spanish folk songs Anda Jaleo (Fire 2010), Josephine Foster and the Victor Herrero Band have created a superb follow-up entitled Perlas (Pearls) releasing today on Fire Records.  It is a jewel of a collection, with songs and poems selected by Josephine herself, gathered from dusty old scores and brought vividly to the present with warm performances full of flesh-and-blood emotion.
Made with a variety of stringed instruments and simple percussion, the songs were recorded live in the studio onto analogue tape by Paco Loco in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. Foster breathes new life into timeless traditional melodies, drawing from the Spanish-folk traditions of Castile, the Basque, Santander and the Costa Brava.
Elemental themes of love bind the collection together, with a melancholy joy that casts a shadow of desire and loss.
