Let's Face It, You Were Wrong(2007)
I've chosen "folk" as the default genre, since the song forms and melodic styles in use are essentially "folk". However, the instrumentation is rather different from what first springs to mind when using the term "folk". There's not a single note from an acoustic guitar to be found on the album. Instead, it's full of percussion of all sorts (drums, bells, shakers, scrapers, rattles, on and on...) plus jaw harps, mouthbow, and plenty of SYNTHESIZERS! (A real folk instrument, the synth, and I ain't kidding...) I think the best way for me to categorize the music on the CD I've made for RPM '07 would be to hyphenate a few different categories, and I think this might come closer to an adequate summing up, somehow: Folk/Experimental/Blues/Afrobeat. I think whoever listens to the music and gives it a little thought will find that this comes close to defining what's going on here!
