I’ve built such a fanciful kingdom in my head
Say, don’t you want to go there?
For fans of the Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons, I can’t see any reason you wouldn’t want to visit the world of Philadelphia’s resident folk-rockers Hoots and Hellmouth, who launched their latest album Salt yesterday. Their latest effort attempts to push them beyond being merely lumped amongst modern folk revivalists, as they attempt to focus on individual songs and further develop their unique sound. But as they say on “I Don’t Mind Your Cussing,” “talk is talk is talk.” The proof is in the music, and what Hoots and Hellmouth offer on Salt is definitely worth savoring silently, letting it all soak in.
