Album Notes
KT Ismael -- Guitar, vocals
John Carey -- Upright Bass, assorted

Wemew arose from several songs that Ish had been writing over the years. While in sailor college in 2005, Ish met John and really enjoyed playing the songs with him, and so it was decided to record an album.

Musically, wemew skirts the boundaries of folk, country, rock and jazz. Not to be a name-dropper, but if you're a fan of more modern folk, or the 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho, you'd probably dig us.

All of the songs are original (save the super secret bonus track cleverly hidden at the back). They attempt to be deeply personal, but not quite whiny; funny, but not a novelty act; simple, but musically interesting; and principled but not quite preachy. It's left to the listeners to determine the degree of success at any and all of these.

REVIEWS (more as they are available):

"I like it" -- Ish's Ma

"Wow, you're actually really talented" -- cute drunk redhead at a bar we played

"I like the old stuff better" -- our first fan, before we sold out

From Amie Street users
"Very funny cheeky vibe lyrics. Raw and flip like you might expect from Jack Black!... but sometimes,something so geniune slips through pleasant and possibly accidently which brings to mind Jim Croce with a Bab Bad Leroy Brown. " — Fridmey

"Friddie mentions "cheeky" and Jim Croce. That almost sums this up. Cheeky lyrics and a Jim Croce like voice. And acoustic style reminiscent of both he and James Taylor." — Joffi
