Jim Moray first shook up the folk scene in 2003 with his experimental album Sweet England, while Sam Carter is best known as a thoughtful singer-songwriter with a fascination for American shape-note hymns. Now they are co-leaders of a bravely original folk-rock band. False Lights play mostly traditional songs, now transformed with full-tilt electric guitar work from both Moray and Carter – with Moray also adding bass and keyboards – and they succeed because they are also both fine, no-nonsense singers who concentrate on the narrative of their songs. There’s impressive variety here, from the stomping Skewball to the pained and pounding gospel plea Oh Death.
