Perception’s a funny thing. The first time I heard this album I was a little put off…not sure why really, I think I was listening to some sort of post-post-rock nonsense just prior, and the two juxtaposed were just too contrary for my ears to handle. Anyway, my loss! As it’s pretty damn cool, and I am into it more with every listen. Check these NC brothers out — all gruff vocals, banjos, acoustic guitars and the like. Some of the album reminds me a bit of their NYC neighbors to the North, O’death.
