Description: Bell X1
Bell X1 and Damien Rice used to be a band called Juniper. Juniper berries are used to make gin. “Gin and tonic dressing gown…” is a lyric from Bell X1’s debut album, Neither am I, released in 2000 in Ireland. Ireland used to be poor, and now it’s blingin, with scattered showers.
“I want to pretend it’s kind of this Classic Country/Gypsy/Jazz thing,” says Amy LaVere of her new Archer Records album, Anchors & Anvils. “I like so many different kinds of music, and I want to be all of them at different moments of the day. But I’d love to think that it’s kind of a Big Pop record.
