Arborea, Red Planet

February 8, 2012

On this lovely outing, Buck and Shanti Curran weave sparse, haunting sonic tapestries with a cornucopia of acoustic instruments that includes guitars, banjo, tenor ukulele, harmonium, kalimba, violin, hammered dulcimer, and cello, accompanied by Shanti’s wispy, ethereal vocals. Tapping American and British Isles folk with psychedelic and American Primitive touches and a 4AD production aesthetic, this disc is an avantfolk wonder. Strange Attractors.
