The Low Anthem — Smart Flesh
Almost the model of a brilliant folk band
A lot of bands out there today think a snare shuffle and a banjo makes a folk song. They are wrong. A folk song requires a timeless, rustic feel that can’t be defined so neatly as that.

VOTD: Typhoon climbs a tree for La Blogotheque
Dogs, hanging instruments and hipsters all around you. Sounds like a typical Take Away Show to me.
The 2000s saw folk singers assemble indie-orchestra bands loaded with violins, cute musician girls and scruffy faces (Sufjan Stevens, Lost in the Trees, Austin, Texas's Mother Falcon).
Portland’s Typhoon just may have literally taken this sub-sub-genre as high as it’s ever gone.
