Folly and the Hunter – Residents

3228350733-1Soft folk comfortably laden with post-rock crescendos. I was introduced to the music of Folly and the Hunter after a show in Montreal. Piano-driven melodies are the perfect pairing for a never-strained falsetto that lends depth to the album’s glorious harmonies. There is something inviting here — the ease of the record’s arrangement details the warmth of friendship between the actors, the chemistry between singers and players. This is upbeat, pleasing folk music, leaning toward indie or post-rock but with an historical affection for the Appalachian tradition.
