Backtrack: Various Artists The Golden Apples Of The Sun

Looking back, it's actually difficult to capture just how weird and momentous the freak folk movement of the first half of the 2000s felt. It wasn't cobbled together so much as it was a united front of weirdos that were obsessed with their own skewed vision of the past -- AM radio gold sat comfortably… More »
