Allison Crowe: Newfoundland Vinyl II

It’s here! Allison Crowe just released Newfoundland Vinyl II and it’s the perfect followup to her traditional folk masterpiece, Newfoundland Vinyl. Like its predecessor, Newfoundland Vinyl II is comprised of traditional Canadian, Irish and Scottish folk songs newly arranged, performed, produced and engineered by Allison Crowe from a local theatrical production for which she serves as Musical Director.

The jauntier Irish-influenced ditties “Paddy McGinty’s Goat” and “The Wild Rover” are very fun listens. Allison’s use of her own multi-tracked choral vocals as part of the arrangements continues to amaze.

My absolute favorite songs are the ballads: the shipwrecked first single “The Water Witch,” the soulful, quintessentially Allison Crowe sound of “30 for 60″ and the album’s beautiful finale “Saltwater Joys.”

I’m used to keeping secrets for Allison Crowe, but this one was especially difficult not to shout from the hills.

So you can imagine how excited I was to learn she will release Newfoundland Vinyl II on December 2nd!!!! Ahhhh!!! And here’s the first taste of the album, a lyric video for the traditional folk song about the 1875 shipwreck of a vessel called “The Water Witch.”

Allison Crowe: Scared (Anti-Abuse / Rape / Domestic Violence Song)

This song is about not being afraid to stand up for yourself and what you believe in, to speak out even in the most adverse of circumstance.
– Allison Crowe

We do not see
So blindly forgotten
The pain unspoken
Torturous mystery

Why can’t you say what has been done to you
you are not wrong and you should not…

Why do you stand
for silence when you know you’re screaming
anger floats so deeply below the surface
why do you carry this on your shoulders,
you did not create this

and I am not afraid to say

I am not wrong and I am not dirty
I will not wait for karma to take its course
Now I am not afraid and I am not worthless no
I am not wrong
No I am not

I am not ashamed of this
I am taking you on, and
I am not scared of you

Allison’s hardworking manager and I have tried in vain to make Vimeo’s full album embed from viewable to those of us on Android devices, but we have yet to find a solution. So just click here if you can’t see the album player below…
