Album review

Folksongs For The Afterlife - Put Danger Back In Your Life

For those under the impression that the current Brooklyn scene consists entirely of garage-rock rehashes and electroclash posing, the lazy, hazy sound of Folksongs For The Afterlife will set you straight. Like some otherworldly combination of Mazzy Star and vintage My Bloody Valentine, they employ wan female vocals and layers of moody guitar in a mind-bending manner whereby even the uptempo songs feel like ballads. Without venturing into overproduction, Put Danger Back In Your Life conjures a rich sound capable of carrying you off into the daydream of your choice.
