Boomkat Product Review:
Charalambides are free-folk royalty, widely regarded as originators of this ever-mystifying scene. The band even included Volcanic Tongue's co-founder Heather Leigh Murray in it's ranks, but on 'A Vintage Burden' we are down to the original pairing of ex-couple Tom and Christina Carter. 'A Vintage Burden' is their most intimate and accessible album yet, kicking off with the subtle and timid 'There Is No End'; lightly plucked electric guitar encased in Christina's gorgeous multitracked vocals. The band have always been labelled as being influenced by early American blues and folk, however this album has transcended the influence somehow - and although there are very strong folk resonances, the two have worked hard in carving themselves a niche that encapsulates a variation of traditional post-rock and fine, utterly involving music. Their finest, most rewarding album to date - a must for all fans of Kranky and this maverick band.
