Happy New "Head-Fi" Year!
Following a recent discussion of Mutual benefit-my copy arrive today. I've seen them described as indie folk, chamber/baroque folk.
Allmusic tags them: The expansive yet fragile experimental pop project of nomadic multi-instrumentalist Jordan Lee.
It's a beautiful album. I wouldn't call them traditional folk. They have a denser, electronic folk pop sound-some psychedelia. You'll hear wind chimes, strings, piano.
And, speaking of blending folk with other styles....I've been wanting to get Dyaln's infamous 1966 bootleg concert when he "went electric". And here it is in all it's glory-
Pretty interesting historical concert-infamous even for those wanting to research. It's hard to believe for those of us who were not listening to music in the 60's at the reaction from the folk community to Dylan plugging in.
The music is terrific-mix of folk and rock.
