Kengsinton Bluesing into East Flanders with this discreetly powerful ode to trad Americana. Newcomer Venediktos Templeboom adopts the drama and transcendence of the primitive pluckers of yore while infusing his 12-stringer with a melancholy proper to these grey flatlands, their idiosyncratic buzz whirring beneath. Remembering the great Roses and Faheys while floating blissfully towards horizons yet uncharted ~ may the rustle be your carrier.

The sparse but expressive guitars, slightly muffled vocals, and minimal drums give this a melancholy and heady feel. It's like Kungens Man jamming with Alan Sparhawk after a bad break-up and a few lines of ketamine. PannionSeer
