[An occasional update on what some of us are listening to now. - Ed]
Since giving these guys a listen last month on a recommendation from a friend (thanks, Jamie), they’ve been in constant rotation in my apartment. A sort of folk/rock/bluegrass hybrid, they combine the British Isles brogue of Glen Hansard at his full-throated best with the building crescendos of Sigur Ros’s popier tracks like Inní mér syngur vitleysingur and the earnest energy of a Kings Of Leon.
Then, just yesterday, came across a series of films they put together during an acoustic recording session in Treadwell’s Bookshop in London. Love the videography, love the setting, love the music. Check it out.
