Birch Book/Birch Book III_A Hand Full Of Days/Ahnstern/2009 CD Review

Birch Book is a project from Portland, Oregan that plays psychedelic Avant Folk music and this is a review of their 2009 album "Birch Book III_ A Hand Full Of Days" which was released by Ahnstern.

Accoustic guitars use alot of fingerpicking and full chords to give the music a folk music feel mixed in with a small amount of electric guitars that use a short solo, while the percussion are kind of slow beats, as for the harmonica it kind of brings a bluesy edge to the music.

Vocals are all clean singinh while the lyrics touch everyday life type of themes with a metaphysical approach, as for the production it has a dark but professional feel.

In my opinion Birch Book are a very good neo-folk band that has a sound more of it's own and could also get fans of old folk music as well neo-folk fans. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Patchwork Woman" "Sad Song" "Nothing More" and "Will Of The Wind". RECEMMONDED BUY.
