Aaron Roche and Tim Hinck have taken folk and modern classical music to another dimension entirely. The 4-D result is plainspeak, their new album recorded with members of the Chattanooga Symphony, Lambchop, The Cherry Blossoms and Silver Jews.
plainspeak beckons with with the familiar (fingerpicked acoustic guitar, Roche’s pure voice) and rewards with the and avant garde (the reverb saturation of “Saraburi Provence”, Hinck’s arrangements for winds and strings on “A Weaker Vision”). Heretofore unexplored, Roche and Hinck apply George Martin’s aesthetic to brilliant, minimalist folk.
Simply put, plainspeak is a masterpiece.
