What an interesting surprise. A few seconds into the new, self-titled Howling Sycamore album, I found myself thinking, “Naw, not for me.” Now, 20 minutes in, I am totally digging this record. Original and kinda different in it’s approach, they pull it off 100 percent.
Symphonic, darkly obsessive with some very cool jazz influences on the back end, there is some damned creative stuff here. I really got a kick out of the baritone saxophone on the track “Obstinate Place.” The vocals have a great range, and the musicianship if pretty damned killer all the way around.
