Reviews for Faeland’s debut album “All My Swim” released Jan 20 2018

“Without doubt one of the albums of the year. All My Swim is surprising, never complacent. Just like the best music should be ” – Shire Folk

“Throughout, Faeland exhibit a soft, measured assurance in the performances and a rich, inviting warmth in the production. All My Swim is a debut that does far more than impress, it delights.” – Folk Radio UK, 2018

“Beautiful” – Kathleen MacInnes , BBC Radio Scotland

“Sweet sumptuous folk music” – Richard Pitt, BBC South West

“A really fabulous band making glorious folk music” – Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing

“A very impressive debut…Highly recommended, fifty minutes of gentle, carefully-crafted quality sounds. It is an album to escape into and become part of; somehow it seems removed from the normal time stream….” Cambridge Music Reviews 

“An album of subtleties and understatement, of deftly and lightly woven musical threads… worldly and often otherworldly. .. if this is not way up the [Top Albums of 2018] list then it will have been an unimaginably spectacular year for music.” Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture
