Okay, I picked up both, and I'm glad I did so. Meets the Soothsayers is killer. Well constructed arrangements, great melodies, beautiful singing. 2013's best new release so far, IMO. New Scroll has it's own hypnotic charm as well. More restricted in it's creativity but awesome nonetheless. Seems to go for more of a hard-core minimalist vibe and it works.
Plus Ernie has just put up the new Vernon Maytone LP, On The Right Track. Never heard of the uniteam label from France but the clips sounded sweet. Ordered it straight off as I'm a Maytones fanatic.
2013 is turning out to be a great year for us Greybeards.
