2012 release from the Scottish indie band. Incorporating the complex musicianship of '70s folk rock with modern melodies, the group's members boast many hardened years of experience. This collective wisdom creates a sound unlike what any of them have done before. While their contemporaries seek out a freaky-deaky (and quickly tiring) take on folk, Snowgoose maintains it's focus on skill and ability, outshining trendy approaches in a gorgeous basket of light. Glorious harmonies anchor the songs, while expert playing dresses them up in frills and vests. This is music with a folk heritage that doesn't rely on traditional structure, and it's beautiful reaches are glorious to hear. It has been awhile since an album as special as Harmony Springs has come about. Thankfully, the real folk music continues to exist in many fans' minds, and sometimes that produces a result as special as Snowgoose.
