I bought this on the strength of a recommendation in Mojo by Paul Weller. I am so glad I did. I'm a big fan of the primary influences on this band--Fairport Convention and The Incredible String Band. They channel a lot of both, and there are hints of The Band as well. For me this is the best band I've come across since Fleet Foxes, another group who wear their influences on their lapels. And like them, they have the chops to back it up--great tunes, fantastic loose playing, interesting instrumentation and arrangements, out there vocals, and a cohesive sense of knowing what they're about. The more I listen to this, the more it grows on me. If you like King Creosote, The Unthanks or Espers I think you will enjoy this--it's got a nice touch of eerieness and and almost fey (in the best sense of the word) quality that both charms and stays with you.
