A strong debut LP from New York’s Olden Yolk arrives, a collaborative effort from Shane Butler of Quilt and Caity Shafer.
They have, the blurb reads, a “penchant for dystopian folk, abstract poeticism, and motorik rhythms” which makes them “sound uniquely of-the-moment yet simultaneously time-tested”. That is very much true.
The project was initially conceived in 2012 by Butler as an outlet for one-off songs but gradually became something larger until we are where we are now and there is enough for an LP.
