If you like Least Carpet, Steven R. Smith and similar
This is incredible. It's again Nick Castell from London, this time with a more basic, down to earth music. I would describe it as a kind of traditional droning folk.
The Ingredients: Guitar, Banjo, Dulcimer, Cümbüs Saz, Violin, Fife, Drum, Mouthorgan, Trumpet, Piano, Jaw Harp, Saw, Bow, Bottleneck, Hands, Mouth. Some might say the mind is important. Some might say the soul is preeminent.Highly recommended and for a very very low price!
