Boomkat Product Review:
*Now at a campaign price!* This is the third recording of Faun Fables, the experimental balladry shaped by Oakland-based artist Dawn McCarthy. Her work unfolds in a visceral combination of music and theatricality that she calls songtelling. The main instrument is her cathartic voice, framed by harmonically adventurous guitar. On this album, she is joined by Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, adding a bestiary of vocals, instrumentation and song collaboration. Family Album is another prize for fans of traditional folk music, the occult, cabaret, art rock, medieval prose and all the wonders of weird americana.
