ALBUM REVIEW: "There Are Roots Below" 

Auld Lang Syne

"There Are Roots Below"


It's simply amazing how, no matter how much gets layered onto Auld Lang Syne's sound, it becomes more and more minimal. On this 10-song album, the band swirls above a simple chaos like you'd hear on something that has Joe Henry's hands on it. It's downright epic with its angelic chorus of voices slithering in and out and around each other, and intertwining with things like French horn (I swore I heard French horn in there). It's ultimately a mellow-down affair with brief sojourns into some rural giddy-up.
