Part A Minor Forest, part Tarentel, part Italian film score and part classic rocking for acoustic guitars, accordion, upright bass and really loud drums. This startling Bay-area four-piece combines complex arrangments and subtle mood shifts to create a beautiful space somewhere between tense and overwhelming. In less skilled hands, the thought of acoustic guitars, accordion, bass and drums running circles around each other sounds like a surefire recipe for bad dance moves. But leave it to these boys to be the ones to pull it off. It's unique, it's excellently crafted, and it's so gorgeous.
