This, I believe, is essentially a Trembling Bells record–they wrote and performed almost everything, but the addition of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy as a singer on the songs is quite cool.

And together, they bring an edge to their swirling mad folk sound to these songs about beauty and destruction and destructive beauty and beautiful destruction.
