015 - Bowerbirds (Hymns for a Dark Horse)

I don't know any other artists that make music that sounds like this. If Folk were a house, Bowerbirds would be the garden: connected, albeit distinctly. Both male and female vocalists have lovely voices that augment one another when in harmony. Overall, the album feels un-rushed and melancholic, but that doesn't preclude it from having lighter moments, as heard on In Our Talons. I like the use of the accordion, the melodica and the violin. The first two tracks are ordered as they come on the album.

Bowerbirds - Hooves

Bowerbirds - In Our Talons

Bowerbirds - Slow Down
