With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie is M G Boulter’s second full length album release, following 2013’s The Water And The Wave. Relocating this time from the shores of the Thames Delta to the peak district of Sheffield, Boulter has worked closely with award-winning producer Andy Bell (Bellowhead, Seasick Steve and Teenage Fanclub, as well as BBC Folk Album of the Year 2014 winner) to produce an album of lyrical depth and quiet brilliance. As with former projects, Boulter has surrounded himself with an array of musicians from different genres to help create his music: here one finds Ben Nicholls (The Full English, Seth Lakeman), Toby Kearney (These New Puritans), Sheffield songwriter Neil McSweeney and folk artist Lucy Farrell, among others.
The weird and wonderful coastal characters that inhabit Boulter’s songs feature again here, from the drunk down-and-out who has illusions of being Ernest Hemingway’s reincarnation in ‘Sean or Patrick’, to the fatalistic smoker father in ‘His Name Is Jean’. With Wolves The Lamb Will Lie reaffirms M G Boulter’s ability to conjure up compelling stories and mesmeric musical arrangements.
