Pumajaw now, don't think I've heard these before but they sound quite intriguing. As is a little bit of a fashion at the moment this is folky stuff wrapped up in a musty experimental blanket woven together in a Gap sweatshop from strands of Eastern percussion, accordion, effects pedals and drone. Have you seen those war rugs they make in Afghanistan? Fucking mint, those. There's an almost tribal intensity to some of these tracks that I find very appealing, most notably in the battering psych-out of 'Horseshoe Nail'. The singer lady's got a hell of a voice, cooing serenely like Nico one minute and screeching like Kate Bush being eaten alive by ferrets the next. If you liked the recent Helena Espvall and Masaki Batoh collaboration you'll probably like Curiosity Box, maybe for fans of Alexander Tucker too?
