The Easy Club is frequently billed as "Scottish folk music meets swing," and that's a good start. Rumor has it that this is their best work. It's really quite good, and its uniqueness is its best quality.
This album is a mix of lyrical songs of a slightly pop music feel and more improvisational instrumental tracks. In the songs with lyrics, the swingy element is perhaps a bit restrained and not entirely successful. I think some of them are slightly formulaic sounding, which is also an admission that they can be pretty catchy(as is the first track).
But the fusion really works on the instrumentals, where the artfulness and improvisation are freely expressed. They're lovely. I don't know anything about the instruments they use, but the sound is quite unique and pleasant.
Chance or Design is certainly worth a try, and clearly succeeds at making Scottish folk music more palatable. If you hate folk music, you probably wont like Chance or Design. But if you can only tolerate Scottish folk music, you may still love this album.
