EL BOY DIE / The Black Hawk Ladies & Tambourins (2010)

The El Boy Die sound has a skeletal underpinning of traditional folk and Neo-folk but is then layered with psychedelic melodies, acoustic guitars, tribal chants and even orchestral ambience.  The parts fuse into an organic sound that shifts effortlessly from beautifully haunting and shadowy to serenely calming and whimsical.  I could bombard you with similar adjectives for the next hour and not run dry.  Just try it and see for yourself but bear in mind the only track I could find to link isn't representative of the album as a whole.

Songs of Note: Dead Kings; Moona Luna Tears

4 hypnotic deaths out of 5
