INSOMNIAC FOLKLORE: Everything Will Burn: CD

Sep 20, 2017

Nick Cave-y vocals accompany theremin, violin, organ, “stomp box,” and “cow bones” in Insomniac Folklore’s sixth full-length studio album. Rev. Tyler Hentschel arranges and conducts darkly literary old timey music in the vein of acts like Mischief Brew or Madeline Adams. The effect is measured and dramatic by turns, and the music will speak most clearly to folk punks and steampunks––people whose aesthetic sense relishes elaborate anachronistic flourishes and references. For others, the record may come off as just slightly over the top. Not that that’s a bad thing. –Lyle (Self-released,
