Jack Rose & The Black Twig Pickers
My, how they've come a long way: Jack Rose and Twigs fiddler, banjoist and singer Mike Gangloff used to create cosmic psychedelia and third-eye drones as members of the group Pelt. They then went their separate ways, each one morphing into a master of archaic American folk music. Rose and Gangloff are once again playing together, and their debut full-length is nothing short of brilliant. A fusion of old time and Piedmont blues, real-deal mountain music courses through the veins of both musicians.
