The gentle, hook-laden songs of Gregory And The Hawk's mostly solo / acoustic sets have received much of their considerable attention through internet streaming and downloads, resulting in a groundswell of support that belies the fact that up until now, there has been no label, no manager, or indeed any other supportive network to help them on their way. GATH have one major thing on their side - their ability to craft spellbinding, idiosyncratic pop songs, that sound at once suggestive, familiar, and yet very much their own. Whilst ocassionally recalling the likes of Elliot Smith, Liz Phair, Mazzy Star, Marissa Nadler, or Regina Spektor, 'Moenie and Kitchi' sees them able to move from the tender, stripped back dynamics of simple guitar and voice to the more fierce and firey exhortions - sometimes within the space of a single song. An incredibly mature and irrestistibly hook-filled album, it announces the entry of a major new talent.
