Indigo‘Indigo’ is one of the finest albums that I've heard in a good while and I need to keep reminding myself that this isn't straight out of the heart of Austin.

Indigo - Blackheart

The opening track ‘Wonderland’ sets a highwater mark for the rest of the album, ‘In America’ comes close to swamping the flood gates.

Blackheart are starting to make waves on both sides of the Atlantic. You can hear why.”


Invisible“There’s no difficulty in recognising the emotions bound up in each song. These are personal stories, prayers, encounters and experiences revealed by lovingly crafted lyrics in piercingly sharp observations.

Chrissy's vocals slide from soft breathy delicacy, through joyous harmony and precise control, while Richard's guitar talent is imaginative and inspired; and their harmonies are just luscious.

Their debut album, Indigo showcased the skill, depth and range that Blackheart entwine into their songs. It also reflects the influences and journeys that create their unique sound. Without doubt their new album ‘Invisible’ will be an equal blend of perceptive personal reflections on people, places, memories and futures. Blackheart are going places, no question, no doubt.”

AREL003 TWICE BITTEN (Aus) Now is the Time (For Whiskey
Now Is The Time (For Whiskey)

Now-Is-The-Time - Twice Bitten

Twice Bittens first CD “Now is the Time (for Whiskey)” is an example of blending country style with a Tasmanian/ Australian flavour. The cd features ten originals, a and four arrangements that showcase the talent of this duo.

Most remarkable of the interpretations is the treatment of 'Sin City', a Gram Parsons/Chris Hillman song from the Flying Burrito Brothers era. A stunning song when recorded by the Burrito's, it takes on a new lease of life and is a must listen,

AREL004 Tallulah Rendall Libellus

LibellusLibellus - Tallulah Rendall

Tallulah Rendall's first album, Libellus, was released by Arelmusic on 4 February 2011.

Libellus – a small book of poetry that comes to life – was provoked by the Iris Murdoch novel 'The Sea'. Each song on the album is accompanied by its own painting from artist Beshlie McKelvie.

‘Libellus’ is a soulful, mellifluous and downright beautiful affair which led to the Evening Standard calling her a ‘top up and coming artist’ and Contact Music branding the album ‘sublime, fragile, soulful and heart-piercing in its intensity’.

A passionate performer, Tallulah weaves her enchanting vocals around these songs with a rock'n'roll elegance not usually associated with today's female artists.


Indigo - Blackheart

Prompted by an idea from a BBC Radio 2 producer to consider reinventing a modern day Blackheart version of a traditional Christmas carol, we decided to rewrite Christina Rosetti and Gustav Holst’s beautiful ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’. Retaining the original words of the first verse, the music was given an adventurous uplift in speed, instrumentation and production and the remaining three verses totally rewritten to ask questions about homelessness, loneliness and social problems of today.

‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ reached No.1 in the NCM Euro Chart.


Outlaw Heaven - The Popes

Outlaw Heaven’ showcases some of The Popes most exciting and brilliant material.

Shane MacGowan features on three songs: ‘Outlaw Heaven’, Bastards’ and ‘Loneliness Of A Long Distance Drinker’. Spider Stacey also guests on ‘Outlaw Heaven’. Chief songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Paul McGuinesss “says, there is an Irishness about the songs on this ... album as opposed to it being irish music! The feel is more Thin Lizzy-Van Morrison than it is Shane MacGowan or The Pogues’”.


New Church - The Popes

'New Church' contains songs that will have you reaching for that inevitable fiddle and thumping the table in honour of the band’s great songs that stalk and parade right through this album. With this album The Popes have established themselves as a band that takes no prisoners. Paul McGuinness and Jo O'Meara hit the spot with In a Broken Dream. Queen of Manhattan, Alice and New Church confirm the new road – this is the New Church of Popes music.
