Editorial Reviews

Steeple is the first album proper from Wolf People and represents the emergence of a fully fledged band from the fragmented, haunted bedroom meanderings of their Tidings singles compilation, released earlier this year. Recorded in a converted chicken barn on the grounds of a 17th century Welsh mansion, Steeple takes on a heavier sound while maintaining the arabesque electric guitars, groove-laden drums and ethereal vocals that characterized its predecessor.

Format: MP3 Music
This is a powerful record that wears its many influences on its paisley sleeve -- most of them from the '60s and all of them English. What keeps this record from slipping into mere mimicry is the way the group cherrypicks the choicest attributes from the bands they love and re-packages them as a perfect, crystalline example of their ideal sound. Of course, comparisons tend to marginalize the music created here, but they sound like they've listened to a lot of Traffic. They also bring the heaviness of Cream's best work and, therefore, I am tempted to suggest that this sounds like what Blind Faith could have been: A lumbering, yet intricate beast that sounds just as comfortable plucking folk melodies as growling out monster riffs, while flutes and other flourishes float in and out over the top. Beyond the style, there is serious substance: this is just a solid set of songs. Look out for Wolf People, once this band gets going, they may be unstoppable.

Getting tired of that mainstream mana..?? Look no further than this LP from Wolf People. Dive into esterday, visit the sounds of the underground from those heady 60s and 70's..... This is a wonderful up to date take on all those great elements that made music (particularly the British) underground so collectable and unique. I'm not talking the hits and memories dross, I'm hearing early Jethro Tull,Gravy Train & Andwella's Dream mixed with other seminal proto prog ideas from that time all with a modern production.
Keep up the great work guys it certainly makes a refreshing change to hear your LP rather than the usual shite thrust upon the unsuspecting young generations these days.... Other readers might want to checkout the band Diagonal as well.

I am completely floored by this release. I honestly haven't been this psyched about a new release in quite some time.

Just this week, I was thinking to myself that 60's-70's classic rock as we knew it was completely dead, then someone turned me onto this band.

They incorporate so many elements of bands that you may have loved, Traffic, Jethro Tull, even some early Sabbath and Zeppelin like riffs here and there are mixed in and it all sounds fresh, original.

Silsbury Sands, Tiny Circle, One By One from Dorney Reach and Castle Keep highlight the disc but I don't think there is a bad track on here.

Very enthusiastic five stars from this one and I hope these guys can keep them coming. They have my attention.

I've been brought up on what I would describe as great music: Led Zep, Pink Floyd, U2. I sometimes feel like I was born too late, and would love to have lived in another era, another time. Not to get too nostalgic (of an era I have no idea about), to the point of Woody Allen's critique in "Midnight in Paris", but there is something slightly magical when looking back on that era. This album, from start to finish, is a short folk-rock epic in my view. The guitar solo in the opening track, Silbury Sands, accompanied with the strong bass, is simply majestic and skin-tinglingly good. Some might say this is a cheap knock-off of the 70's sound; some will say there's no depth; and others will no doubt be critical of this band's approach to re-creating a sound, time and place that live on in many peoples' hearts. But to me, that's point. Especially as I wasn't even born before the 80's! My God this is good fun!

Why have I not been listening to this every day for the past 3+ years? I'll never get that time back, but I'll try to make up for it now by listening to Steeple and Fain a few times a day.
