Blackbird Raum - Under the Starling Host - LP

Blackbird Raum - Under the Starling Host - LP

Courtesy of our friends at 1859 Records & Distro

An all-acoustic, pre-apocalyptic dance party taking cues from the last great depression to ring us gloomily into the next one. Utilizing banjo, singing saw, washboard, accordion, mandolin, not to mention vocal cords tarred with train grease, Blackbird RAUM somehow manages to combine 1920s american string band music with anarcho-punk, grunge and undeground metal, into a sound that culminates in scathing banjo/washboard gymnastic two-steps and depressive waltzes. They have performed anywhere from condemned warehouses and broken down docks to main stage at Northwest Folklife, playing tunes that are perfect for coup d'etats, end of the world parties and funerals. This is punk folk, not folk punk, man!
