ALBUM REVIEW: Laws of Motion, Karine Polwart, Hudson Records, out on October 19
Scottish folk musician and playwright Karine Polwart holds nothing back in tackling world issues on her new album Laws of Motion.
Full of warnings about societal collapse, environmental disaster and corporate greed, the six-times winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards has something to get off her chest.
Laws of Motion stretches the boundaries folk tales and simple musical arrangements to breaking point, mixing the sung word with the spoken word on tracks like "I Burn But I Am Not Consumed, Matsuo's Welcome to Muckhart and Cassiopeia".
