A Hawk And A Handsaw – The Way The Wind Blows

Here’s an unique, beautiful $3 score from Sonic Boom…

The 5th Annual Toronto Expedition Series, Part 33 (CD)

Forgive me for thinking this was a Geoff Berner record, full of accordion klezmer folk music and haunting, beautiful melodies!

This duo consists of Jeremy Barnes of Neutral Milk Hotel, and violinist Heather Trost (Beruit, also married to Barnes). This is their third record of this (largely) instrumental, Eastern European style.

Partially recorded in the Romanian village of Zece Prajini, it features members of Fanfare Ciocarlia. What a sound!

I didn’t know what to expect, but I liked this!

          First one is brilliant. Flying Club Cub and Rip Tide have their moments, but I don’t tend to revisit them… also didn’t like them enough to buy the last album.

                I’d respond really well to a bit of honesty, ‘Buy this one, it’s nowhere near as good as the last one, but its kinda okay’.
