Boomkat Product Review:
Turn back the clock a decade or two and step into an acid-folk bath with Ben Chasny and Skygreen Leopards' Donovan Quinn. Ah it was all a bit easier back then eh?
Back in the mid-2000s, we were locked in a psychedelic folk whirlwind and somewhere near the center was Ben Chasny, aka Six Organs of Admittance. Not far from him was Donovan Quinn, whose band The Skygreen Leopards released some of the most memorable folk pop of the era via Jewelled Antler, Soft Abuse and eventually landing on Jagjaguwar. The duo teamed up in 2014 for the first New Bums full-length "Voices in a Rented Room" and are now back, just in time to remind us of simpler times with skeletal, jangling songs that are effortlessly memorable.
It's really like time has stood still; Chasny's vocals echo into the ether as Quinn's songs ring out with a radio-friendly intensity without sounding bait. It's a real achievement - just check 'Onward to Devastation' or 'Wild Dogs', familiar like old friends you havent seen for a while.
Now the Foxy Digitalis zine is back (on Substack, natch) it feels like the perfect time to rediscover New Weird America once again. It's got to be better than current America, right? Jeez.
