There's a subtle, laid-back twang throughout, arriving via fiddle, banjo, pedal-steel guitar, organ, clarinet (?!) and, above all, the old-world voice of Ashley Webber, who proves a better singing partner for Oldham than the more heralded Dawn McCarthy did on 2006's The Letting Go.

Jack Carneal's Yaala Yaala Records Pipelines the Sounds of Malinew

Meanwhile, kids in Mali listen to dubbed tapes of Led Zeppelin and Jay-Z.
