Peace Signs
 
Peace Signs Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $14.00
Artist: Kevin Phelan & Peace Signs
 
 
Quantity:
 

Keiron Phelan is a London-based, multi-instrumentalist and alternative pop singer-songwriterPeace Signs is led by Keiron, alongside Brian Eno biographer David Sheppard, of cult millennial post rockers State River Widening, for the bright Chagall pop of Anglo-Japanese outfit Smile Down Upon Us and the Debussy infused neo-classicisms of littlebow.  “Peace Signs” is their 2018 debut.  Peace Signs is a band, of sorts. A serendipitous collection of sympathetic talents featuring (among many) lavish contributions from rising kosmisch-folk star Brona McVittie and musical polymath Oliver Cherer (Dollboy, Gilroy Mere, The Assistant), powered by Papernut Cambridge main-man Ian Button and indie doyen producer Giles Barrett.  The record contains songs about hippie girlfriends (“Peace Signs”), hippy priests (“Hippy Priest”) scandi-noir heroines (“New Swedish Fiction”), Japanese satellites (“Satellite Hitori”), Geoffry Chaucer (“Canterbury”), jealousy (“Ain't She Grown?”) and Jesus (“My Children Just The Same”).  A Slapp Happy and “Hunky Dory” kind of platter; Phelan vocalizing like a non-dozy Kevin Ayers with hints of both Bolanesque willfulness and Bill Fay sincerity. Imagine a confrontational Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy) fronting the Incredible String Band and you're on the right protest march.  “Neil Hannon’s distinguished folkier uncle?  This is a very lovable album full of chamber pop folk tunes that fans of the aformentioned Neil will lap up or perhaps even followers of Richard Hawley and Kevin Ayers will enjoy.” – Calle Falksten  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE 3-FER OFFER!  GET “PEACE SIGNS”, ALONG WITH “HOBBY JINGO” AND “BUBBLEGUM BOOGIE” FOR JUST $36!  IF PAYING BY PAYPAL, YOU WILL BE REFUNDED THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT.  IF PAYING BY CREDIT CARD, YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE CORRECT 3-FER PRICE!  EXCELLENT!!
