These guys are probably one of my favorite bands from Portland and their new album, Salvation is a Deep Dark Well, only solidified that feeling. I think they really managed to capture the infectious energy of their live show. They put so much energy into their performances that it’s akin to a giant tidal wave of euphoria. “Golden and Green” is the opening track from their new album.
It’s not the best song, by a long shot, but it gives you a great idea of their sound — a curious amalgamation of bluegrass, the dark Southern Gothic literary tradition, a dash of raucous irish folk, all performed with a punk rock abandon.
