Fire On Fire - The Orchard

Fire On Fire used to be the art-punk-prog-chaos collective Cerberus Shoal, but they ditched their electric instruments, went into hiding for a while, and now play all acoustic—stand up bass, mandolin, banjo, harmonium, accordion, acoustic guitar, dobro etc etc, and they all sing and harmonize on the songs. Live, they do it “old school” and just use two mics placed in front of them on the stage, like a bluegrass band. --last.fm
What an exciting discovery! These guys are goooood. Like a less punk-influenced Blackbird Raum.
I love acoustic instruments, folk music (especially hodgepodge, multi-influence folk), and things written in a minor key. I especially love acoustic minor-key folk music.
Oh now i figured out some of the songs remind of Joanna Newsom as well.
