Being thrown into the Freak Folk genre for some reason, man I hate "genres", and sounding more like qualities of Beck's Sea Change, or at least what I've heard of the album so far, comes the debut album, Freeze-Die-Come To Life from Michael Talbott and The Wolfkings.
I've been listening to a few tracks from the release and it has been the perfect start to the day. Talbott offers up haunting and earnest vocals, anthems of sincerity if you will, and even based on the limited tracks I've heard, this release is most definitely being added to my list of top albums of 2006. Freeze-Die-Come To Life will be released on April 25, 2006, so make sure to head back to AFR next week. Oh, and like always, I have to mention what a great album cover.
Check out their site on Antenna Farm Records, and for that matter just check out AFR in general. First Papercuts I stumble upon and after some exploring of the others on AFR, man what a great label. More to come from them I'm sure.
