Dustdevil & Crow - while walking slowly you can see the grasses grow (USA/UK 2009)
DUSTDEVIL & CROW are Michael Dustdevil of ANCIENTS and ATLANTIC DRONE fame and Bendle from THE DOOR AND THE WINDOW.
Don't have much info on this one, so just go, download and listen.
What do we hear?
First of all: This isn't rock music, it's rather experimental or some kind of weird folk music. Very quiet and with a rather sparse arrangement, mainly vocals and guitar. How you will react to this music will depend very much on your liking of the vocal style. It's very special and fits perfectly to the strange dreamlike atmosphere, but it surely will not be everyone's cup of tea. (Somehow it even reminds me of some a capella songs by the HOLY MODAL ROUNDERS, e.g. Werewolf, though the mood is very different, or some songs by ROY HARPER.)
