Wolf People - “Fain” album mini-mix
Teaser of the new Wolf People album “Fain”, released 29 April 2013 on Jagjaguwar.
Throughout Fain - the band’s second album - folk melodies meet visceral fuzz-rock, never sounding quite like anyone else specifically, but a unique blend that never coalesced at the time. Led Zeppelin weren’t miles away, but their folk tendencies were more of a detour from the pursuit of swaggering rock & roll stardom. Wolf People take both routes in equal measure, counting influences from the psychedelic Mighty Baby to the delicate tones of Fairport Convention. The Quietus
The Dodos - Confidence
From the upcoming album, Carrier, out in August.
The album was written in a period deeply influenced by the unexpected death of guitarist Christopher Reimer. Embracing a more organic approach to songwriting in Reimer’s wake, the San Francisco natives’ fifth LP release will see a shift in tone and style from previous efforts. Paste Magazine

With no default mode of music making, but versed in so many, it would be fair to call Ergo a music conceptualist. But the purposeful construction of his writing and production methods are always in the service, rather than at the expense, of the pure joy of what makes a good song.
