Papa’s got a brand new Porkbag

Rayners Lane

Papa in this case is Hull master Steve Cobby. And Porkbag is his new EP with Porky. Expect downtempo funk.

The opener is the title track Porkbag. This bobbles along at the start before taking itself firmly in hand and giving us some lush pads and sounds.

Next up is Ho’oponopono. I’m such a Southerner. I assumed this was one of those quaint Northern expressions of affection for a small mammal. A ferret perhaps. Wrong. It’s “an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.” Oops. The tune is a gorgeous one, full of faux 60s grooviness that demands you stop what you’re doing and stop taking life so seriously. A particular problem of mine.

Finally, we have Black Pudding. A lovely track, so delicate it’s hardly there most of the time. A little flute welds the whole thing together with gossamer threads.

And relax.*
