Overview

Haul Away!

Haul Away!, the second album from Manchester singer/songwriter Liz Green, walks a beat similar to her jazzy 2011 debut O, Devotion! It's no surprise then, that she considers it a sort of sea-inspired sequel to her more earthbound debut and in keeping with an intended trilogy of albums. Frequent references to the sea, islands, and water abound, though this is no attempt at shanties or rough-hewn British folk. The torchy, whimsical, and often maudlin tones of her earlier work remain throughout Haul Away!'s 11 songs. Working again with producer Liam Watson at his analog-leaning Toe Rag Studios, terms like organic and vintage easily come to mind when listening to Green's songs, which pull influences from American blues, jazz, and folk music. Her round, throaty voice wraps itself around playful, hip-swaying piano tracks like "Rybka" and the shuffling "Where the River Don't Flow," whose snaky saxophone and tuba bassline are indicative of the album's overall sonic and stylistic character. Haul Away! continues to play up the period-piece aesthetic from Green's debut, rarely straying from her bailiwick of vaguely melancholic, cabaret club quirkiness. The understated and stoic opener "Battles" is one exception with its gentle, straightforward banjo picking and warm, folky melody. The album is beautifully recorded and Green's voice is strong and full of character.
