You know, I posted Congregation specifically because it centres her singing and the fact I have strong memories attached to it, but my favourite of theirs in recent years was actually this one. Obviously she isn't singing lead, as she doesn't in Cut, but the tone of her voice and those gorgeous harmonies, simple though they are, both elevate and haunt the track into full goosebump territory. Quite different from the earlier stuff, but I really loved it - what a massive, massive shame.
I have been working my way through some of the other bands from the Hellfest you tube and found these guys. Dunno if they are folk or metal or what but they easily had the best crowd response from all the Hellfest artists i have seen. Absolute bonkers (and greta tunes as well)
I discovered the wall-of-sound bonkers of Dan Deacon this week. It would appear he has quite a few albums to his credit, but the first tune I ever heard by him is on Gliss Riffer from 2015, so that is what I have been listening to. Reckon he deserves a mention in this thread, as I am struggling to characterise his music and cannot think of anything else quite like it. Freak pop? Maximalist minimalism?
Take this one, for example. It is like Steve Reich and Paul Lanksy necked a load of drugs, then spent some quality time with the machine elves.
