Got a CD in the mail from folk duo Chas Mtn, their debut LP called Hugs. The album is filled with folk tunes that would sound great around any campfire. Their press release says they have "influences rooted in gangster rap, dub, films featuring Keith David, Ned Egg and Gary War wanted to start from scratch." I don't think I can really hear any of those influences in the album though. The songs are filled "with lyrical material ranging from the depression and hopelessness of pan-capitalism to the contempt derived from the manipulation of women." Wow. Pretty deep, but I think anyone can enjoy the album for it's hushed tones at least. Recommended if you like Devendra Banhart, Iron and Wine, blah blah blah...

Cinematic, Unbearable (.m4a)

Be their friend.
Buy the album from Western Vinyl.
