  • (acid) folk 2020

    I have been highly inspired by this thread which led me to discover a lot of great music:

    What happened since? Any recommendations?

    As of lately I have been enjoying Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi's 'There's No Other' album.

      Did you try Tuomas Palonen's LP? I'm not going to say it's acid folk, I don't even know what that's supposed to be except a term to catch people out when you're trying to sell a pretty ordinary folk LP that has nothing else going for it. This is a gentle, folky, meandering kind of thing with a little bit of an 'odd' edge which may be helped by the fact that I have no idea what he's singing about. Could be fairies and wizards or it could be cod and chips, I've no idea. What I do know is it's a great record.

      Just thinking you might also try looking into the Forlag For Fri Musik bunch as well. They're an odd lot and no mistake. Acoustic, folky, field recordings, general not-quite-rightness. Is it something about Scandinavia?
