This guy Taylor Kirk has a slightly strange shtick. Kind of half 50's R'n'R crooner/half nu-folkster with a bit of a haunted ballroom vibe. If you could imagine Richard Hawley dragging Devendra Banhart along, through some dusty Badlands, by his crazy Jesus hair then you might be somewhere close. The thing I particularly like about this band of quirky Canadians is that they sound queerly out-of-time and with that, really homely. The music has a curious warmth, an engaging simplicity & a heartfelt playfulness. Both dreamy and eerie, this won't be to everyone's charms (his vocals are sometimes a little um...special) but it's nostalgic oddness has charmed my pants off today!
