Fly My Pretties: The Studio Recordings, Part Two (Loop)

The previous volume found Wellington's FMPretties and many guest vocals in the studio revisiting previously released live material.

This does exactly the same with mainman Barnaby Weir's vocals central alongside guest singers such as Hollie Smith (especially good on Clarity), Eva Prowse, Ryan Prebble and A Girl Named Mo reprising their live roles.

With its easy weave from soul to country-soul, reggae to country-pop and smidgen of folk, this offers few surprises – aside from a sharp freshness – for those who have scooped up their previous releases.

And yet the previous volume went into the top five on the New Zealand artists' charts first week in.

This hasn't done that, but given the affection they are held in you wouldn't be surprised if . . .

You can hear and buy this album at their website here.
