RIYL: Dylan Carlson, Josh T. Pearson, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Label: Ilk Ither
Bent Folk, led by Dick Whyte, is a New Zealand fringe folk project specializing in sprawling acoustic experiments reminiscent of early Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Josh T. Pearson. Â Bursting with tension and melancholy, these songs are soaked with the blood of the desolate country, the abandoned industry, ourÂ internal wars. Â Whyte’s vocals are impossible to ignore, and married with Alison Studens’ organ drone and Bent Folk’s tear-tinged acoustic minor chord melodies, expect nothing less than your ears to be reduced to a pile of embers when the music stops. Â Absolutely essential listening.
TheseÂ cassettes are incredibly limited and priced to move, so don’t expect them to be around for long. Â Listen toÂ all 3 of the epicÂ soundscapesÂ below and grab a copy of the tape after the ‘buy’ link.
A limited edition cassette of the Bent Folk's new album "Why / Liar / Gone", with a whole bunch of bonus material on the second side (collecting the previous Bent Folk releases together in one place).
Get in quick cause these won't last for long.
