Strange Folk

The outsider perspective is often at the heart of great folk music, and those in the trenches have always embraced a do-it-yourself philosophy. Whitney Phaneuf talks to five artists pushing folk into new experimental territory in their own ways.

play album Blacklight Barbarian by Blacklight Barbarian

Oh glory this is just class. Just think early Black Sabbath meets the Black Keys.

play track The Lone Crows by The Lone Crows

This is properly one of the most accomplished albums I have heard for many a year. Play it loud and play it proud.

Just simply grand stuff. Intelligent and one of the best touring bands in the UK.

play track Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Omaha Diner

Spotted from the Bandcamp homepage, this is a great cover - perhaps even more so because it is instrumental. Good to let the horns do the talking, sometimes.

play track Black Panther by Ayanna Witter-Johnson

A beautiful EP - vocally, musically, and lyrically, this gets a regular play. Reminds me of early India Arie, yet Ayanna clearly has a style of her own. Like it so much I bought copies for my girlfriends.

play track Song For My Baby by Black Pearl Records

Laid back vibes, piano, guitar and Latin flavours all concoct a perfect wigged out special dedication classic. Reminds me of Harvey Mason and 80's soul classics, with a big oooph! waiting to knock you out and make your heart sing.
