Multi-instrumental acoustic trio Three Cane Whale comprises Alex Vann (Spiro), Pete Judge (Get The Blessing) and Paul Bradley (Scottish Dance Theatre). It combines the influences of folk, minimalism, classical and film music to produce something a little different, but at the same time, somehow, familiar...

Palimpsest is Three Cane Whale's third album. With influences taken from Folk music, jazz and even Northern brass bands, Palimpsest drapes its cool tunes over the listener like a warm blanket on a cold evening.

The album contains 21 tracks (51 min, 21 sec) and really is one of those rare albums where everything falls apart if one element is removed. You can only play this in the order intended and you'll get the most out of the experience if you listen all the way through. It's a thing of beauty, a bizarre little album to love and cherish.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm itching to check out their previous albums
