Fatea review

We got this mini review from FATEA, a web-based folk zine:

Good honest folk rock with no pretentions, is probably the easiest way to describe, "Untie The Wind" from Oxford based Telling The Bees. Named after a fine English folklore tradition, it's no surprise to discover the music being inspired by the same ideas and thoughts. Whilst all the songs are penned by band leader Andy Letcher, they draw on something much older, as does the instrumentation and arrangements. It gives the album a timeless and almost hypnotic quality. It's an album of relationships, with each other, with the land and with the less tangible. Enjoyed it a lot.
