My latest music discovery: Horse Feathers. I just purchased their latest CD, entitled Thistled Spring. It's great. Here's a free download of one of the songs from this album, called Belly of June. You can also of course take a look at the video above, which is a song called Curs in the Weeds, from their last album.
The band is from Portland, Oregon. (What is it with Portland? So much of the music I love seems to come from here.) I love the combination of guitar, violin, and cello, and the lyrics are lovely. Dark, but lovely.
