Rosalie is a great vocalist but the songwriting and production leave much to be desired.

No two songs sound alike, and all of the songs are obviously written and developed with the utmost care and attention to detail!

Their music is a world of sonic tapestries textured in electric velvet and silk harmonies.

Debut release from London band--beautiful, dark 60s influenced folk-metal/prog-rock led by the
potently gorgeous voice of Rosalie Cunningham. There are soaring keyboards, arcane demon-
themed lyrics with a pervasive sense of ritualistic occult mysticism, haunting psychedelic washes
of magnificently retro-sounding rock with medieval overtones, smoothly muscular keyboard rolls
and an occasional Celtic folk flare-up. (The band calls it "Baroque `n' roll".) Reminiscent of
Jethro Tull, Jex Thoth, Fuzz Manta, Jess and the Ancient Ones, Savage Rose, Stone the Crows,
Fairport Convention. A riveting, magic musical journey back in time.

This album is so good that I had to force myself to listen to other music instead of just listening to it over and over again! Purson hails from London and, at the time of this writing, has just over 4,400 followers on Facebook - very small band! They self-describe their genre as "Vaudeville Carney Psych", and that's pretty accurate! I discovered them in the doom-metal circles, and they seem to fit nicely in that space too (check out the album cover, for example), although it's more upbeat and not as heavy as sludgy as most doom (but packs enough exciting punch to satisfy the metal heads, as long as you have an open mind). Anyway, this album is amazing - filled with unbelievably catchy melodies, rhythms, and feels. You'll be humming the melodies after just a few listens. Purson also delivers a ton of diversity in this 12 song debut album. No two songs sound alike, and all of the songs are obviously written and developed with the utmost care and attention to detail! Lead vocalist and guitarist Rosalie Cunningham wrote or co-wrote all of the songs, and is unquestionably a towering talent. If you read much about Purson, you'll notice that references to The Beatles surface time and again, and they even thank them in the liner notes by saying, "The Beatles. Nuff sed.[sic]" And you can tell - the songs are constructed so beautifully, and they are simply layered with texture, nuance, and gorgeous writing. Cunningham's vocals are top notch, always clean, and seem to bounce around effortlessly - sometimes even soaring, and always with as much control and power as she wants. The guitar work is ultra cool - there are no really ripping guitar solos (as you'd expect in "pure" metal), but there are plenty of great riffs and extremely tasty use of wah-wah.Read more ›

What do you get if you stick Siouxsie Sioux, Circulus, early Deep Purple, Jefferson Airplane, a touch of Astra, Black Sabbath and a Cantrerbury fuzz organ and some psychedelics in a blender? Well a red goo of liquidised entrails and splintered bone obviously!
But what if it was a metaphorical musical blender? Well the end result would be Purson. Probably.
Issued on the inestimable Rise Above label, it's a worthy Pop/Fuzz/Psychedelic companion piece to Uncle Acid's Sabbath/Sludge/Psychedelic Mind Control.

Purson was a great king of HELL served by 22 legions of demons and after hearing The Circle and the Blue Door, make that 22 legions plus me!
Primarily the work of the divine Ms Rosalie Cunningham she plays everything bar Bass, Sax and drums (hey chicks can't play drums...)
She plays plenty of mellotron which is a good thing with lots of it on the first couple of tracks. Spiderwood Farm is the strand out track at the moment, a most welcome earworm. Leaning on a Bear gets me breaking out my 60s style idiot dance (what doesn't? - ed.) and Well Spoiled Machine is catchier than Goose Grass.

So, if you want a modern record which sounds as if it could be a classy old record then tune in, turn on, take the Circle line and exit via the Blue Door.
What are you doing, BUY, go on, make like Aphrodite's Child and DO IT!

I came across Purson completely by chance, and now I am hooked. Their music is a world of sonic tapestries textured in electric velvet and silk harmonies. Theirs is the doorway to Chapel Perilous, wherein the narcotic delight of mystery beckons and entices seductively into a field of flowers, whose fragrance is the lyrics sung so masterfully by the high priestess of the ceremonies of each song.

Retro? Yes. If Iron Butterfly and Black Sabbath were distilled into a perfectly evolved daughter, than Purson would be it. Perhaps this is just a flash in the pan, a freak accident retched into the world by a careless trickster deity, but I hope not. Purson's newest EP "In The Meantime" is indicative of a band that is ready to keep exploring and delving deeper and deeper into the marrow of their talent. If they continue to warp the space-time continuum, then Hippie is going to be hip again.

Many great songs and moments appear on this album. It's very strong. It does, however, have that slightly weird civil war re-enacter vibe of slavish imitation. I suggest they change gears often from now on. And don't rely on organ solos featuring triplets quite so often. The singing is excellent, but a bit on the chilly side. Still, entirely worth your time if you like fairly heavy, lively rock.
