Palimpsest

Bob Spector It's tonal, acoustic, singable, wistful, ingenious new music for mixed trio and quartet -- a collection of chamber pieces you can listen to when your heart needs lifting. Each piece has a specific reference -- a time, a person, a place. There are rhythmic complexities which, surprisingly, call to mind yMusic.

Thanks to Olga Kivius for unearthing this gem. Favorite track: Shadows On The Chalk Hills.

Olga Kivius Once in a while I scan bandcamp in looking for my favorite musicians & voila!
Their 1st album reminded me of Penguin Cafe Orchestra, but mostly they stand in a row with such folk groups as British Spiro (A.Vann is its member). But guitar, mandolin, harmonium, dulcitone, lyre, glockenspiel, chimes, harp, bouzouki, zither, bowed psaltery + different types of horns played by P.Judge (yeah, from "Get the Blessing") make their music not only folky melancholic fairy-tale like but also fresh & unique! Favorite track: Brute Angels.
