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!
