This Seattle trio recently signed to Matador Records, and I’m not entirely shocked by that. Especially not after listening to this charming and breezy song. They convey a sweet pop sense injected into some old-fashioned American folk music. In fact, their sound has been described in the Seattle Weekly as “an updated version of the Anthology of American Folk Music. Not the graduate-student, learned interpretations of folk music circa 1962, but folk music approached by way of punk rock. It’s sparse, melodic, and simultaneously creepy and alluring, like the widow mourning graveside in Johnny Cash’s ‘Long Black Veil.'” Yup, that’s a pretty good way to say it. Listen to “Seeds of Night” by The Cave Singers, and see for yourself.
