I want to take this time to thank Carlos for his music reco, Dark Dark Dark, which floats around aimlessly in my head. This Minneapolis-based chamber-folk sextet bring together disparate influences including New Orleans jazz, Americana, Eastern European folk and pop. Some of their songs cud even conjure comparisons to British folk oldies and French accordion music.
With one pass, this band pull the listener forward into their world of soft rhythm and enchanting vocals. It will find a place in the collections of those seduced by the indie-folk of Laura Marling. There are also hints of Beirut in some tunes! Dark Dark Dark couldn't be moving more resolutely towards the light.
